Louisiana Special Warranty Deed Form

The Louisiana special warranty deed is used to convey real property in the State of Louisiana. It is one of the different types of deeds that provides a limited guarantee as to the title of the property. The guarantee is only that the vendor (seller) has not transferred any interest in the property to another while he or she has owned the property. The vendor does not guarantee any transfers that may or may not have occurred before the grantor owned the property, however. It is important that the buyer, or vendee, complete a thorough property search before he or she purchases the property so he or she has a good understanding as to the interest that they are buying in the property.
