Real estate conveyances in Kansas are governed by Chapter 58, Section 22 of the Kansas Statutes, but the statutes do not specifically address grant deeds.

A grant deed is a legal document used to transfer, or convey, rights in real property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). A recorded grant deed imparts notice of this transfer to all persons, including subsequent purchasers or mortgagees (K.S.A. 58-2222).

Within the deed are covenants, or guarantees, that the grantor has not previously sold the real property interest now being conveyed to the grantee, and that the property is being conveyed to the grantee without any liens or encumbrances, except for those specifically disclosed in the deed. Grant deeds do not generally require the grantor to defend title claims.

A lawful grant deed includes 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 Kansas residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are tenancy in common and joint tenancy. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless otherwise stated (K.S.A. 58-501).

Include the complete legal description for the subject property, as well as its physical (street) address or common name and the derivation of title. Additionally, the form must meet state and local standards for recorded documents.

All deeds must be signed by the grantor, or by the party's lawful agent or attorney, and may be acknowledged or proved and certified in the manner prescribed by the Uniform Law on Notarial Acts (K.S.A. 58-2209).

The State Property Valuation Department requires a Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire with each deed unless it meets one of the exemptions provided in K.S.A. 79-1437e. Include the amount of consideration exchanged on the form (K.S.A. 79-1437g).

Submit the deed and any required supplemental documents for recording in the county where the property is located. In most cases, the deed will be returned to the grantee after recording. The register of deeds will forward the information to the county clerk, who will update records for mailing tax statements (K.S.A. 58-2221). Record the deed in the appropriate county to provide notice to third parties (K.S.A. 58-2223).

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

This is a great service and terrific value. The form package provided (blank form, example form & set of instructions) was clear and easy to follow. Being able to complete the forms using the computer to insert the needed information saved countless hours. My completed form was accepted by the Clerk & Recorder office without any issue. Well worth the investment

The State form I chose was valid and accurate. However, I found the ability to enter information was inadequate and difficult. Converted the form to a Word document and was then able to enter the information I needed to.
