North Dakota Special Warranty Deed Form

North Dakota Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 12, 2024

A North Dakota special warranty deed is similar to a general warranty deed because it guarantees title in the conveyance of real estate. However, with a special warranty deed, the title is guaranteed only as to any claims that arise out of the grantor’s ownership of the property. In other words, the grantor is guaranteeing that he or she has done nothing to encumber the title while he or she has owned the property, but the grantor is not guaranteeing anything that may have transpired with previous owners. Again, it is prudent to have a title search completed if you want to be sure of the interest that you are intending on purchasing.

Laws – Title 47 (Property), Chapters 47-10 & 47-19

Recording – All deeds should be filed with the County Recorder’s Office in the jurisdiction of the property.[1]

Signing – All deeds must be sworn by the Grantor(s) signing in the presence of a Notary Public.[2]

Grantee Certification – All deeds must include a signed certification from the grantee that certifies the amount paid for the property.[3]
