Illinois General (Statutory) Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 10, 2024

An Illinois statutory warranty deed allows the conveying of property from one person (“grantor”) to another (“grantee”). The deed is the grantor’s promise that there is no one else who can make a claim on the title but does not promise any defects against that title prior to their ownership. Therefore, a title search is recommended for all grantees purchasing property under a deed.
