General warranty deeds are statutory conveyances under KRS 382.030. The deed must state that the grantor "will warrant the property hereby conveyed" or contain words of import like "with warranty" or "with general warranty" (KRS 382.030).

A warranty deed is a legal instrument used to transfer, or convey, rights in real property from a grantor (seller) to a grantee (buyer). They offer substantial protections for the grantee and are the most common type of deed for standard real estate transactions. When using a general warranty deed, the grantor warrants that they are the true owner of the property and have the legal right to convey it, that the property is free of liens or encumbrances unless otherwise listed in the deed, and that the grantor will defend the grantee's right to the property if anyone makes a claim against the title, forever.

In addition to meeting all state and local standards for recorded documents, a lawful general warranty deed identifies the grantor and grantee and their addresses. State law requires information on how the grantee will vest title in 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)).

Include a complete legal description of the property, and the source of the current grantor's title. 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.

Provide the in-care-of tax address where the property tax bill may be sent (KRS 382.110(2)). Kentucky law requires the preparer's name and signature on the face of the deed (KRS 382.335). Each grantor and grantee must sign the deed in front of a notary (KRS 382.030).

Record the deed, along with any supplemental documentation necessary for the specific transaction, in the county in which the property is located (KRS 382.110(1)). Recording provides public of the change in owners and helps to maintain a clear chain of title.

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.

loved the ease of use for the forms.
went on line to find out about Adobe Reader, too. Had a test to see if I had it. Took few seconds. Then on to ordering and downloading which took only 5 minutes for the three forms I wanted.
Thanks, Katie Anderson

Easy to use, I would recommend deeds.com. I would recommend visiting your county recorder before having document notarized. They will review document and make sure everything you need is on the deed, before having notarized.

Thank you Debbie. Have a fantastic day!

The process for obtaining document itself was easy, and the included guide and example are great! rnI do have an issue with the format itself, though. The form has pre-defined text boxes, which cannot be altered without partially rebuilding the entire document. For the 'property description' field on the Mineral Deed form, the text box is not large enough for the rather lengthy legal description entered on my original plat.rnFortunately, I have a copy of Adobe Pro, so I have been able to re-build the doc to accommodate this short-coming.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our legal form. We're pleased to hear that you found the process for obtaining the document and the included guide beneficial.

We understand and appreciate your concern regarding the formatting and size limitations of certain fields, especially the 'property description' field. Our forms are designed to adhere to specific formatting requirements that are often mandated for legal compliance. Making direct alterations to the document can result in them becoming non-conforming, which is why we advise customers to use an exhibit page when their legal description is extensive or does not fit.

I very much dreaded this whole endeavor but very pleasantly surprised. So far, so good. I feel much more confidant that the crucial form, when presented, will play well with the county.......
