A Special Warranty Deed is similar to a General Warranty Deed however it only contains two basic warranties:

In a special Warranty Deeds the grantor may include additional warranties but they must be specifically stated in the deed.

5stars for prompt and fast! Website needs work. Hard to navigate for first time users and hard to find where to pay. Emails are more clear than the "message center". Not sure what happened to my other documents, lol
