A grant deed, also referred to as a bargain and sale deed, is a legal document used to transfer, or convey, rights in real property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). It contains covenants that the grantor has not previously sold the real property interest being conveyed to the grantee, and warrants that the property is conveyed to the grantee without any liens or encumbrances except for those specifically disclosed in the deed. Therefore, if the grantee later discovers that the grantor has sold the property to a third party, or if there are undisclosed encumbrances, the grantee may be able to sue the grantor for damages.

Lawful deeds include the grantor's full name and marital status, as well as the grantee's full name, marital status, mailing address, and vesting. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. For Illinois residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are tenancy in common, joint tenancy and tenancy by entirety. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more persons creates a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy or tenancy by the entirety is specified. (765 ILCS 1005/1, 1005/1c.).

As with any conveyance of real estate, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the source of title to establish a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. The deed must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. Finally, the grantor signs the completed document in front of a notary. Once acknowledged, record the deed in the recorder's office in the county where such lands are located. Make sure to include all relevant documents, affidavits, forms, and fees.

I am an attorney who was trying to draft some deeds in arizona. The deed templates coupled with the document instructions saved me hours work. At 1st I was skeptical, so spent hours figuring out how to draft the documents, but could have saved so much time If I had just spend the $20 sooner. Would use again is needed a deed format as a basis for my drafting.

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!

It would be helpful to have a frequently asked questions section. That would make it easier to know I have the correct form.
