What is the New Jersey Bargain and Sale Deed

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.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

Great service! Easy to download and view. Florida should have the Revocable Transfer on Death (TOD)deed, that many other States have. That's the one I really wanted. This one will do in the meantime.

Was working with a notary client that need to do a deed. We got on this site, ordered the blank forms, he filled them out and we printed them so he could sign. Really clean forms, easy to understand and complete in a hurry. I will be letting all my clients know about this site.

That's terrific Camesha, glad to hear. Have a great day!
