What is the Kentucky Grant Deed?

Real estate conveyances in Kentucky are governed by Chapter 382 of the Kentucky Revised 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 transfer to all persons, including subsequent purchasers or mortgagees. They contain covenants, or guarantees, that the grantor has not previously sold the real property interest being conveyed, and that the property is being conveyed to the grantee without any undisclosed liens or encumbrances. Grant deeds do not generally require the grantor to defend title claims.

The deed must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents. A lawful grant deed identifies the grantor and grantee, with their full names and addresses, and states how the grantee will hold title to the property. For Kentucky 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 otherwise specified (KRS 381.050(1)). It also includes a complete legal description and physical address of the property. Explain the source of the current grantor's title and include the in-care-of tax address where the property tax bill may be sent (KRS 382.110(2)). The preparer of the instrument must sign the document (KRS 382.335).

State either the full amount of consideration exchanged during the transfer, or if nominal or no consideration has been exchanged, the fair cash value of the property in the consideration certificate section pursuant to KRS 385.135. The county assesses a transfer tax on the consideration, due at the time of recording, unless the transaction is exempt under KRS 142.050.

After the grantor signs the completed deed in front of a notary, record it, along with any supplemental documentation necessary for the specific transaction, in the county in which the property is located (KRS 382.030, 382.110(1)). Recording provides public knowledge of the change in ownership and helps to maintain a clear chain of title.

Review: It worked great- I had a little trouble at first with the site, figuring out where to do what, but the form was much better than the one we purchased at Staples, loved being able to fill out with the computer. We did need the other form as per the screen prior to ordering but couldn't figure out which one. The ladies at the recorders were great too.

Name: James S.

Review: Order Process: 5 Stars - very easy Material Received: 2 Stars Issues: 1. Printing- Document would not print in format displayed. Format would continually shrink to approx 2/3 size thus not useable for formal doc submission to County Records office. 2. Document Format- Data insertion fields (addresses) were not of correct size for data input. I needed a 4 line input space but was limited to only 3 lines. Also, Date field (year) was mis-oriented in-so-much that the 3rd digit (inputted) overlapped on 2nd digit (pre-printed) and also was of noticeably different font. 3. Useability- Hand-written input space provided (for Notary) was deficient in space and spacing. It was a challenge to utilize the space available to complete fully and maintain legibility. Overall - the document worked marginally as advertised, I did need to re-write the entire document myself. It is a good concept but I'd recommend that Deeds company improve the downloaded forms for actual useability, readability, functionability. regards, Jim S
