Kansas Special Warranty Deed Form

The Kansas special warranty deed is a legal form used to transfer land and buildings from one person (the grantor or seller) to another (the grantee or the buyer). A special warranty provides limited warranty as to title, meaning that the grantor warrants only that he or she has not transferred any interest in the property to another while he or she has owned it, but grantor makes no warranties as to any transfers that occurred prior to his acquiring the property. It is important for the buyer to conduct a property or title search in order to determine the exact interest that he or she is purchasing.
