Deeds and Title Transfers

Transfer ownership or prepare a deed with help from our real estate lawyers.

We routinely assist clients with transfers to LLCs, family members, friends, and other purposes. We can advise on whether a transfer is appropriate and explain the best method of title transfer.

Deeds can be complicated.

Specific rules must be followed to correctly transfer ownership of real estate by deed. Using the wrong instrument or transferring for the wrong reasons can have long-lasting consequences.

Save the time and worry.

Let us worry about handling the ownership transfer correctly. We can prepare the deed, record it, and answer any questions you might have about the ownership transfer along the way.

Deed Definitions

Quitclaim Deed

A quitclaim deed makes no promises about whether title is clean and marketable. The grantor gives up all ownership to the grantee, but the grantee does not make any guarantees about the status or amount of ownership. (See 16 O.S. Section 41)

Limited Warranty Deed

In a limited warranty deed, the grantor does not provide a full guarantee against all possible title issues, but the grantor does promise that the grantor himself did nothing to create a title problem during his period of ownership.

General Warranty Deed

In a general warranty deed, the grantor promises the grantee that title is clean and marketable. If the grantee discovers a title problem, the grantee can potentially sue the grantor for breach of the title warranty. (See 16 O.S. Section 40)
