Kansas Limited Warranty Deed

Kansas Limited Warranty Deed Information

A limited warranty deed is a legal document used to transfer, or convey, rights in real property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). This type of deed provides significant liability protection for the grantor, and less protection for the buyer. In a limited warranty deed, the grantor only warrants against defects in the title during his or her ownership, and that he or she is authorized to sell the property. However, it does not guarantee freedom from claims on the title originating before the grantor owned the property.

A lawful limited warranty 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).

As with any conveyance of real estate, a limited warranty deed must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. It also requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Include the derivation of the grantor's title to the property to prove a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property.

Within Kansas, a deed must be acknowledged by a county clerk, register of deeds, or mayor or clerk of an incorporated city (K.S.A. 58-2211). Any deed that has been executed and acknowledged in another state before a person authorized by the Uniform Law on Notarial Acts will still be valid (K.S.A. 58-2228). The deed must be signed by the grantor, then acknowledged and recorded as directed by K.S.A. 58-2205.

Submit the deed for recording in the county where the property is located. Include all relevant documents, affidavits, forms, and fees with the along with the deed for recording. Complete a Real Estate Sales Validation Questionnaire for the deed unless it meets one of the exemptions provided in K.S.A. 79-1437e. Contact the local recording office with questions.
