Updated May 14, 2022

A Maine general warranty deed is used to transfer property from a seller to a buyer in the State of Maine. With a warranty deed, the seller is providing to the buyer a guarantee that the seller owns the property, that there are no other rights to any part of the property other than what is disclosed, and that the seller has the legal authority to sell the property. By signing this deed, the seller is agreeing to defend the buyer if any unforeseen claims of ownership to the property should arise. However, it is still prudent for the buyer to conduct a thorough title search.
