Delaware Special Warranty Deed Form

The Delaware special warranty deed is used to transfer land and buildings to another person or entity. It does not guarantee that there is clean title going back past the current owners – only that the current owners have not transferred their interest in the property to anyone or otherwise encumbered the property. As in all cases, you may want to have a property search completed, otherwise known as a title search so that you know what interest the grantor (seller) has in the property and what they can legally convey to you as the grantee.

Laws – § 121
