Michigan Covenant “Special Warranty” Deed Form

The Michigan covenant deed, acting as a “special warranty” deed, is a form used for transferring property in Michigan to another with a limited guarantee. Instead of a warranty deed which guarantees title from before the grantor owned the property and since a covenant deed only guarantees the title from when grantor owned the property. In other words, the grantor is certifying that he or she did not transfer any interest in the property to another while he or she owned it. However, the grantor does not guarantee anything prior to his owning the property. Again, it is prudent to complete a title search so there aren’t any ownership surprises.
