Alabama Grant Deed

A grant deed, as a type of conveyance used in Alabama, is required to be in writing, and must be signed by the grantor. The execution of a grant deed should be attested by at least one witness, and if the party cannot write, by two witnesses who are able to write. However, a proper acknowledgment can take the place of witnesses (35-4-20).

Grant deeds are not mentioned by name in the Alabama statutes, but the deed is still in common practice in the state. A grant deed transfers property ownership from a grantor or entity to a grantee or entity. In this type of deed, the grantor promises that he/she has not transferred the title previously and that there are not any encumbrances, other than those that may be stated in the deed. In addition, a grant deed will pass after-acquired title.

A grant deed is inoperative and void as to purchasers for a valuable consideration, mortgagees, and judgment creditors without notice, unless the instrument has been recorded before the accumulation of the rights of such purchasers, mortgagees, or judgment creditors (35-4-90). Grant deeds are recorded in the office of the judge of probate in the county where the property is located. Recording serves as constructive notice of the contents of the deed.

Debra W. said: I found this site a must. It provided all the forms I needed to file a Quit Claim Deed. I filed what use to be called a Quick Claim Deed 30 years ago. You only had to file the one form. Today it is called a Quit Claim Deed. The pack provided forms that I had no idea had to be filed with the Quit Claim Deed. I would not have known this otherwise if the option hadn't presented itself. Thank you!

Maria S. said: The paperwork/forms are fine, but there isn't enough explanation for me to figure out how to file the extra forms (which I do need in my case). The main form, Deed Upon Death is fine. I think the price is pretty high for these forms. I wouldn't have purchased it because there are places to get them for much cheaper (about 6 dollars), but this site had the extra forms I wanted (property in a trust and another form). Unfortunately these were included as a "courtesy" and there are no instructions for them. So three stars for being clear about what was in the package, having the right forms that I need, but instructions for putting them to use and price took a couple of stars off. Downloading was easy and once you download you can type the info into the PDF--that makes working with the forms much easier.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the feedback Maria. Regarding the supplement documents, it is best to get assistance from the agency that requires them. These are not legal documents, they should provide full support and guidance for them.
