Nebraska Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated January 05, 2022

A Nebraska special warranty deed is used to transfer property from a seller of real estate (grantor) to a buyer (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, the grantor guarantees that there are no defects in the title related to their ownership. Although, nothing is guaranteed prior to the 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.
