A New Mexico general warranty deed is used to convey real estate in New Mexico from one person to another. A warranty deed comes with a guarantee from the grantor, or seller, that the grantor owns the property outright, the grantor has the legal authority to sell the property, and there are no other claims against the property other than what is disclosed (such as easements, restrictions, etc.). Once the document has been properly completed and notarized, it must be recorded by the clerk in the county in which the property is located.
