Nebraska Special Warranty Deed Form

The Nebraska special warranty deed is used to transfer property from a seller of real estate to a buyer, also known as grantor to grantee. Like a warranty deed, a special warranty deed comes with a guarantee, but a guarantee that is limited to the grantor’s ownership.  In other words, grantor guarantees that there are no defects in the title related to his or her ownership. Nothing is guaranteed prior to grantor’s ownership. It is always a prudent idea for a buyer of real estate to have a proper property search conducted in order to ascertain whether or not there are issues in the title.
