Ohio Limited (Special) Warranty Deed Form

Ohio Limited (Special) Warranty Deed Form

Updated April 12, 2024

An Ohio limited warranty deed is a form that conveys property interests with a guarantee. However, unlike a warranty deed, the grantor is only guaranteeing that he or she did not encumber the property while he or she owned it. That means that the grantor is guaranteeing that he did not give anyone else any interest in the property. The grantor does not guarantee what other owners may have done prior to the grantor’s ownership.

Statutory Form – R.C. § 5302.07

Recording – Must be recorded in the County where the real estate is located.[1]

Signing – Grantor(s) must sign in the presence of a Notary Public.[2]
