Updated May 11, 2022

A Delaware general warranty deed is used to convey or transfer real property from one person to another. A general warranty deed actually provides a form of guarantee from the seller (or grantor) to the buyer (or grantee) that the title to the property has no defects. This means that the seller is guaranteeing there is no one else who can make a claim to the property. However, it is still recommended that the person buying the property conduct a thorough title search to ascertain exactly what he or she is purchasing.
