In New Jersey, real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a bargain and sale deed with covenant as to grantor's acts.

Bargain and sale deeds are generally used to transfer the grantor's entire interest in the property at the time of conveyance without any warranties of title. Unlike quitclaim deeds, bargain and sale deeds imply that the grantor holds an actual interest in the property being conveyed. Additionally, in New Jersey, a bargain and sale deed with covenant as to grantor's acts includes a promise from the grantor that he or she has not encumbered the property (N.J.S.A. 46:4-6).

A lawful bargain and sale deed with covenant as to grantor's acts deed includes the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status, and the grantee's full name, mailing address, marital status, and vesting. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership.

For New Jersey residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A conveyance to two or more unmarried persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless otherwise stated. A conveyance to a married couple creates a tenancy by entirety, unless otherwise stated (N.J.S.A. 46:3-17, 46:3-17.3).

As with any conveyance of realty, a bargain and sale deed with covenant as to grantor's acts requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. The deed must meet all state and county standards of form and content for recorded documents.

Sign the deed in the presence of a notary public or other authorized official. For a valid transfer, record the deed at the recording office in the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to confirm accepted forms of payment.

Deeds transferring new construction as the term is defined in N.J.S.A. 46:15-5(1)(g) should contain the words "NEW CONSTRUCTION" in all caps on the first page (N.J.S.A. 46:15-6(2)(c)).

If the conveyance is exempt from transfer taxes, explain why on the face of the deed. See N.J.S.A. 46:15-10 for transfer tax exemptions. A completed Affidavit of Consideration is required for deeds claiming exemption or partial exemption.

The Gross Income Tax Form (GIT/REP) must be recorded with a deed when transferring real property in New Jersey. Ask the local assessor or recording office for help choosing the correct version of the GIT/REP.

Thank you for your services...Attny office quoted a very large fee for the "TOD DEED" process, so this is very helpful that I am able to take care of this myself. If I would have researched your link sooner, I could have saved my Dad a lot of money for the "SURVIVORSHIP DEED". Thanks again & have a wonderful day:)

Extremely easy and fast recording of real estate records. I was impressed that it was less than 6 hours from the time I uploaded the document to Deeds.com to receiving confirmation that it was recorded by the county clerk. I would highly recommend this service to save you time and quickly get documents recorded!

Over all quality of document was good. The issue I had was where it states claimant did not have a contract with the owner or their agent. I did have a contract with their agent, and there was no option for both. So had improvise.
