Types of Real Estate Deeds in Ohio
- General Warranty Deed. A general warranty deed is the most common type of deed used to transfer Real Estate in Ohio. This type of deed transfers – in fee simple absolute – all rights of a Grantor. It contains several warranties related to title – and for this reason, is one of the most sought after types of deeds.
- Limited Warranty Deed. This type of deed acts similarly to a general warranty deed, but limits the warranty of title to the time frame that the buyer held the property. It does not warrant title in the past beyond this period of ownership, which can leave the property subject to legal issues that predate the seller’s involvement. This is commonly used in commercial transactions to limit the exposure of a company for dated ownership interests.
- Joint and Survivorship Deed. This type of deed is used commonly when there are multiple buyers on a deed – such as when a married couple purchases property. With a survivorship deed, when one of the owner’s passes away, their interest typically avoids the probate process and automatically transfers to the surviving party. Under the right circumstances, survivorship language can be added to any other type of deed as well.
- Fiduciary Deed. If the property is conveyed by an executor of an estate, a guardian, a trustee or the like, then a fiduciary deed is used to show that the Grantor has the legal authority to transfer the property – even if they do not directly own it themselves.
- Quit Claim Deed. A quit claim deed is a conveyance of property of whatever interest the Grantor may have. Such deeds are “as is” and no warranties are either express or implied.
