A West Virginia general warranty deed is a form that allows an owner (the “grantor”) to sell property to a buyer (the “grantee”). This guarantees to the new owner that the title is free and clear of any defects, liens, or encumbrances with the statement “that he will warrant generally the property hereby conveyed“. A warranty deed transfer is the highest form of real estate conveyance. After the funds have been transferred the deed should be signed by the Grantor(s) only (with a Notary Public present).
