Colorado Grant Deed


A deed is a legal document that transfers title to real property from one party to another. In Colorado, property owners can use a grant deed to transfer real estate.

When completed and filed properly, a grant deed is a conveyance in fee simple of the grantor's interest in the real property to the grantee (30-113, 38 C.R.S.). Any explicit covenants described in the document are binding upon the grantor and his/her heirs (30-113(3), 38 C.R.S.).

A lawful grant deed includes the grantor's full name, marital status, and address, the consideration given for the transfer, and the grantee's full name, marital status, vesting, and mailing address. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is held in either sole ownership or in co-ownership. For Colorado residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are tenancy in common and joint tenancy (31-101, 38 C.R.S.).

As with any conveyance of realty, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the source of title in order to establish a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. Each grantor must sign the document in the presence of two credible witnesses or an officer authorized to take acknowledgements of instruments having to do with real property (35-101, 38 C.R.S.). Spousal joinder is required to convey homestead property (35-118, 38 C.R.S.). This means if the grantor is married, both the grantor and their spouse must sign the document. Record the completed deed, along with a real property transfer declaration (TD-1000), in the clerk and recorder's office of the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to verify accepted forms of payment.
