Deed Transfers

A deed is an instrument that transfers ownership of real property from one owner to another. A deed includes the names of the current owner (grantor) and the new owner (grantee), and provides a legal description of the property. The deed is signed by the person transferring the property (the grantor). Transfers of new property must be in writing and the current owner’s signature (the grantor) must be notarized. Deeds are recorded in the county in which the property is located.

There are numerous types of deeds and different ways to take title. If you are considering a deed transfer for estate planning purposes or for any other reason, it is important to have an experienced real estate attorney prepare the deed and record the deed for you to make sure it is properly executed.
