A Michigan general warranty deed is utilized to convey real estate from one party to another. The deed “warrants” that the seller (grantor) has legal authority to sell the property and that the title to the property is free of defects. This means the grantor is guaranteeing that there are no other undisclosed interests in the property, and if there are, he or she is liable to the buyer for them.

Laws Chapter 565 – Conveyances of Real Property

Signing Requirements – Must be signed by the grantor(s) in front of a Notary Public. Any judge or clerk of a court of record may also acknowledge the deed (M.C.L.A. 565.8).

Recording the Deed

Per M.C.L.A. 565.201, the deed must be filed with the Registry of Deeds.

Statutory Form

The deed must contain the words “conveys and warrants” and should include the purchase price (M.C.L.A. 565.151).
