Updated September 29, 2022

An Ohio general warranty deed is a legally binding document that transfers real estate interests from one person to another. A warranty deed includes a guarantee by the seller (or grantor) that he or she has the full legal authority to transfer his or her interests and that there are no defects or encumbrances associated with the title to the property. This means that there is no one else who can claim an interest in the property other than what has been disclosed.
