A Kansas deed is a legal form used when parties wish to transfer real estate in the State of Kansas. There are different types of deeds depending on the circumstances surrounding the transfer. Some deeds provide a form of warranty, a quit claim provides no warranty and a transfer on death deed automatically transfers the property upon the death of the owner. It is important for the transferee, or grantee to know exactly what interest he or she is receiving as a result of the transfer. Therefore, a complete and comprehensive title search may be necessary. A title search is a method of determining if there are any undisclosed interests in the property.

Laws – Chapter 58, Article 22. Conveyances of Land

Recording (K.S.A. § 58-2221) – All deeds must be processed at the County Recorder’s Office in the jurisdiction of the property being transferred (See County Website List).
