New Mexico Warranty Deed

The covenants in a New Mexico warranty deed are set by statute and are conveyed by the use of the phrase “with warranty covenants” in a real estate conveyance. The grantor in this type of deed covenants to the grantee that the grantor is lawfully seized in fee simple of the granted premises; that the granted premises are free from all former and other grants, bargains, sales, taxes, assessments and encumbrances; that he has good right to sell and convey the property; and that he will warrant and defend the same to the grantee, his heirs, successors, and assigns forever against the lawful claims and demands of all persons (47-1-37). The statutory form for a warranty deed can be found in 47-1-44 of the New Mexico Annotated Statutes. The use of the statutory form is not mandatory.
