Nevada Special Warranty Deed Form

Nevada Special Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 12, 2024

A Nevada special warranty deed is a legal document used to transfer property with a warranty. This type of warranty is limited, however, in that it is only meant to warrant that there will be no claims of interest arising out of the grantor’s ownership of the property, but unlike a general warranty, it does not include a guarantee for any claims arising out of previous ownership of the property. Similar to the other deeds, you need the grantor and the grantee’s names, the consideration paid, and a description of the property.
