Idaho Special Warranty Deed Form

Idaho Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 10, 2024

An Idaho special warranty deed is used for purposes between a quit claim deed and a general warranty deed. It provides a measure of guarantee from the seller to the buyer, but not a full guarantee. The seller is merely guaranteeing that he or she has not granted interest in the property to another person during the time they have owned the property, but the seller does not guarantee that prior to receiving the property, there was not another transfer not accounted for by people who owned the property before the grantor. Again, it is important to have completed a thorough title search to ascertain what interest you are actually buying in the property.

Laws – Title 55, Chapter 6 – Transfer of Real Property

Recording – Must be completed at the County Recorder’s Office where the property is situated (See County List).[1]

Signing – All deeds must be signed and sworn before a notary public for it to be recorded.[2]
