The Kentucky general warranty deed is used to transfer property from a grantor to a grantee in Kentucky. A warranty deed is a deed that 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 arising during a time previous to the grantee’s ownership, the grantor agrees to defend grantee against the claim. Even though there is a guarantee. It is recommended that a complete title search is completed before the deed is passed so that the buyer knows what exactly he is buying and if there are any hidden interests that need to be resolved.
