A special warranty deed can be used to convey title to real property in Nevada. The special warranty deed must conform to the statutory requirements for a conveyance of real property.
A special warranty deed must be signed by the person from whom the estate or interest is intended to pass (the grantor), acknowledged or proved, and recorded as directed by the Nevada Revised Statutes. The proof or acknowledgment of a special warranty deed in Nevada is to be taken before one of the following persons: a judge or clerk of a court having seal, a notary public, or a justice of the peace (NRS 111.265). A certificate of the acknowledgment or the proof of execution thereof, signed by the person taking acknowledgment or proof of the deed, and under the seal or stamp of that person will entitle the instrument to be recorded (NRS 111.310). A Declaration of Value must accompany any deed submitted for recording.
Every special warranty deed and every instrument of writing setting forth an agreement to convey real property, or whereby any real property may be affected, that is acknowledged and certified as prescribed by Nevada Revised Statutes must be recorded in the office of the county recorder in the county where the property is located in order to operate as notice to third parties. However, an unrecorded special warranty deed in Nevada will be valid and binding between the parties to it (NRS 111.315). After the deed has been recorded, subsequent purchasers and mortgagees are deemed to purchase and take with notice (NRS 111.320). A conveyance of real property within the state of Nevada that has not been recorded as provided will be void as against any subsequent purchaser in good faith and for a valuable consideration, of the same real property or portion thereof, whose conveyance is first duly recorded (NRS 111.325).
