A deed is a document which stipulates the owner of a particular real estate property. The property may be a building structure and/or piece of land. A deed specifies the names of the previous and current owners, and a legal description of the property. When the property is being sold, willed, given to another party other than the current owner, the deed is being legally transferred from current owner to a new owner. Real Estate Property cannot be legally transferred without having something in writing, which in most cases is a deed.

- Quitclaim deed transfers: Quitclaim deeds transfer or “quit” any interest in real property. The grantor may not be in title at all, so the grantee cannot assume that the grantor has any real interest to convey. However, if the grantor were, say, married to the owner of the property, signing and recording a quitclaim deed in favor of the spouse would transfer any interest the grantor may have in the property to the spouse.
- Warranty deed transfers: A warranty deed transfers ownership and explicitly promises the buyer that the transferor has good title to the property, meaning it is free of liens or claims of ownership. The transferor guarantees that he or she will compensate the buyer if that turns out to be wrong. The warranty deed may make other promises as well, to address particular problems with the transaction.
