Connecticut General Warranty Deed Form

Updated September 19, 2023

A Connecticut general warranty deed is used to transfer one’s ownership in real estate to another. This type of deed represents a guarantee by the transferor, also known as a grantor, that he or she holds legal title to the property, that there are no other claims against the property, and that he or she can legally sell the property to the buyer, also known as a grantee. Despite the guarantee, part of the process in the purchase of any real estate should be to conduct a title search or land record search so that the buyer has an understanding of the history of the land transfers and can ascertain whether there are any hidden issues in the title to address.

Signing Requirements – All warranty deeds authorized in the State of Connecticut must be signed in the presence of two (2) witnesses and a Notary Public.[2]

Recording the Deed

All deeds must be recorded with the City/Town Clerk in the jurisdiction where the property is located.
