A North Carolina general warranty deed is used to legally transfer property in North Carolina from one person to another. A warranty deed comes with a guarantee from the seller that the property has clear title. In other words, the seller is liable to the buyer if the buyer finds out there was an undisclosed claim against the property. In North Carolina, deeds, once signed and properly completed, must be filed with the Registry of Deeds in the county in which the property is located.
