Georgia Deed Forms

Updated December 19, 2023

The Georgia deed forms are a method by which property in Georgia is transferred, or conveyed, from one person to another. There are different types of deeds depending on your situation and your needs. Some deeds (warranty) have a guarantee built in where the seller is guaranteeing that he or she has the title and can legally transfer it. The quitclaim, on the other hand, has no guarantee, but the seller is releasing any claim he or she has to the property to the buyer. A limited warranty has a limited guarantee in that the seller warrants that he or she is legally able to pass title and that he or she hasn’t encumbered, or granted any interest, in the property since they owned it, but they do not guarantee that any transfers that happened before they acquired the property were clean transfers. In all cases, it is wise to have a title or property search completed to make sure there aren’t any surprise restrictions or transfers.

Law – Title 44, Chapter 5, Article 2 (Conveyances)

Recording – All deeds must be filed with the Clerk of the Superior Court.

Signing (Ga. Code Ann., § 44-5-30) – A notary public must attest to the execution of the deed, along with one other witness.

Deed Types (3)

General Warranty – This type of deed provides a guarantee to the buyer that the seller will defend against any other claims made against the property.
