Updated May 14, 2022

A Vermont general warranty deed is the most common form of instrument used to convey interests in real property in Vermont. Unlike many other jurisdictions, Vermont does not provide a statutory form for warranty deeds. However, it should be constructed with common law in mind and should include a detailed account of the conveyance. Once completed, it must be signed by the grantor(s) in the presence of a notary.
