Maryland General Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 11, 2024

A Maryland general warranty deed is used to convey property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). This sort of deed provides the buyer with a guarantee from the seller that the seller is legally authorized to sell the property. Despite the guarantee, it is always prudent to make sure that a title search is completed by the buyer as a means of ascertaining whether or not the title is clean.
