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.

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.

You're service saved the day! I had gone to several lawyers and title companies who all said, at a Minimum, preparing a deed costs $1000...
Through your service and some work reading about the requirements as well as calling my county clerks office, I was able to complete the deed and it read accepted and recorded today!
Thanks so much.

This is an option for recording that worked flawlessly with my county government. Given Covid19 has closed county offices to the public as well as the personal kiosks options to record shrunk dramatically. I recommend Deeds.Com for your recording needs.
