Mississippi Special Warranty Deed Form

Mississippi Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 11, 2024

A Mississippi special warranty deed is a form that may be used to convey real property in the state of Mississippi. Like the warranty deed, this type comes with a guarantee from the seller or grantor that the property is free from hidden claims against the title, however, it only guarantees claims arising out of the grantor’s ownership, nothing that comes out of previous owners of the property.

After the deed is completed properly and executed by the requisite parties, it must be recorded with the chancery court clerk in the judicial district in which the property is located.

Laws – Title 89 – Real and Personal Property

Statutory LanguageMiss. Code Ann. § 89-1-35

Recording – All deeds are to be recorded with the Chancery Court Clerk.[1]

Signing  – This form must be signed with the Grantor(s) in the presence of a Notary Public.[2][3]
