Louisiana General Warranty Deed Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Louisiana general warranty deed is used to transfer property in Louisiana from one person to another also known as the “Vendor” or the Seller, and the “Vendee” or the Buyer. The Vendor, when granting a warranty deed, is guaranteeing that the property is free from any other claims or interests (also known Redhibition) against the title. In Louisiana, you need two witnesses and a notary public to be present when the Seller is signing the deed. In addition, in order to prevent trouble later, the Vendee should make sure a thorough title or property search is completed in order to determine whether or not the Vendor has a clean title to the property.
