Connecticut Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated January 03, 2022

A Connecticut special warranty deed is similar to a warranty deed in that there is some guarantee, but it provides less of a guarantee to the grantee (buyer). The grantor (seller) is stating in a special warranty that they have not done anything to compromise his or her interests in the property since he or she acquired the property. However, the seller makes no guarantees as to what happened before the seller acquired the property. In order to be sure what property you are acquiring, it is important to make sure a title search is completed. A title search goes back over the transfers of the property over a number of years. The records are held at the town clerk’s office. Any claims against the property have to be filed with the town clerk.

Laws – Title 47, Chapter 821 – Land Titles (§§ 47-1 — 47-36)

Recording – Deeds shall be recorded with the City/Town Clerk in the jurisdiction where the property is situated.

Signing (C.G.S.A. § 47-5) – All deeds authorized in the State of Connecticut must be done so with two (2) witnesses and a notary public.
