A New York general warranty deed, also known as a “deed with full covenants,” is a document used to transfer the ownership of real estate. The deed provides a warranty from the seller (grantor) that the title is clean, and that if any unforeseen claims to it arise, the seller will defend the buyer. The deed must be filed with the court, along with the required addendums (Form TP-584 and Form RP-5217).
