Georgia Limited (Special) Warranty Deed Form

Updated May 24, 2022

A Georgia limited warranty deed or special warranty deed provides a method of transferring property from one person to another in Georgia. Rather than providing a full warranty on the transfer, it provides a limited warranty whereby the seller (or grantor) agrees to defend the buyer (or grantee) against any claims made through the seller. This means that the seller is stating that he or she guarantees that he or she has not transferred any interest in the property while he or she has had the property, however, there is no guarantee as to transfers that may have occurred before the grantor had the property. A thorough search of land records should be completed before any transfer.
