Create a high quality document online now!

The Colorado general warranty deed is a deed that passes real estate from a grantor to a grantee or seller to buyer in Colorado. The grantor is providing a warranty that he or she has legal right to the property and a legal right to convey the property and that there are no others who can claim a right to the property. It is important with any land transfer that the buyer understands what rights to the property he is buying. That is why it is important that a title search is completed prior to purchase so any defects in the title can be ascertained ahead of time. It is required in this document that the words “warrant(s) the title” be stated to convey the property in a fee simple.

Laws (§ 38-30-113) – The deed must contain the words “sell(s) and convey(s)”

Recording – Form must be filed with the County Recorder’s Office.

Signing (§ 38-30-126) – Any warranty deed authorized by the seller (“grantor”) in Colorado must be done in the presence of a Notary Public.
