When do you have deed disputes?
Deeds can come in many forms from quitclaim deeds to general warranty deeds. These, and ultimately every kind of deed, proclaim the amount of responsibility the seller is willing to take on in the transfer of the property. A quitclaim deed gives no responsibility to the seller. It transfers the property to the buyer in an “as is” condition. Special Warranty deeds transfer some responsibility to the seller, but only the responsibilities expressly mentioned in the deed. Finally, a general warranty deed provides the most protection to the buyer as it signifies that the seller warrants that it has good, clear title to the property being sold. Good, clear title would mean the seller guarantees both no one else can claim ownership to the property other than the buyer and there are no issues with the property such as liens or violations.
Deed disputes often occur when either two of the less protective deeds (Quit Claim Deeds and Special Warranty Deeds) are used. It is always good to involve an experienced attorney on your behalf if these deed disputes occur as property law can be quite complicated. The deed disputes arise when a party who has a claim to the property (e.g., having a title to the property), challenges the current owner/possessor of the property.
