Updated April 20, 2022

A Florida general warranty deed is a deed that transfers property from one person to another. The person selling or transferring the property is called the “grantor,” and the person buying the property is called the “grantee.” A warranty deed conveys a sort of guarantee from the grantor that he or she has clean title to the property. This means that he or she owns the property and has the legal authority to transfer the property. However, it is still recommended that the buyer conduct a title search.
