Updated April 06, 2022

A Kentucky general warranty deed is used to transfer property from a seller (grantor) to a buyer (grantee) in Kentucky. A warranty deed provides a guarantee from the seller to the buyer that the property is clear of any title defects and that the seller has the legal authority to sell the property. If a claim arises against the property, the seller agrees to defend the buyer against the claim. Still, the buyer is advised to conduct a complete title search before the deed is passed so that the buyer knows about any hidden interests that need to be resolved.
