A New Jersey general warranty deed conveys property in “fee simple,” giving the new owner (or “grantee”) the cleanest type of title available and protection from any liens or encumbrances from any previous owner. The form is to be signed upon the transaction date (known as the “closing”) when the money is transferred to the Seller (or “Grantor”). After it has been signed it is to be recorded where the ownership transfer will become official and public.
