The Virginia general warranty deed is a form that warrants property conveyed from a Seller (the “Grantor”) to a Buyer (the “Grantee”). The term “warrant” offers the guarantee to the Grantee that the property will be transferred in fee simple which means that it will not bear any title defects such as any liens or encumbrances. The deed is usually not signed until the very end of a real estate closing when the funds for the property have exchanged hands from the Grantee to the Grantor and all necessary contracts have been authorized. Afterwards, the deed may be filed with the Circuit Court in the jurisdiction of where the property is located.
