The North Dakota general warranty deed is a deed used to transfer property from one person to another. The person selling is called the grantor while the person buying is called the grantee. A warranty deed comes with a promise from the grantor that the title to the property is free and clear of any defects and that the grantor has the full right, title and authority to sell the property to the grantee. It is wise, however, to make sure a thorough property search is completed prior to the sale so that the buyer knows exactly what interest he or she is buying in the property.

Laws (§ 47-10-13) – By use of the word “grant” in a deed the Grantor(s) is stating the transfer of fee-simple title.

Recording (§ 47-19-07) – Must be submitted to the County Recorder’s Office where the real estate is located.

Signing (§ 47-19-03) – Must be signed with the Grantor(s) and a Notary Public acting as a subscribing witness.
