In New Jersey, real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a warranty deed.

Warranty deeds contain the covenants of seizin, right to convey, quiet possession, freedom from encumbrances, and further assurances, in addition to the covenant of warranty (N.J.S.A. 46:4-3 through 4-5, 46:4-10). In New Jersey, when a deed includes a covenant that the grantor "will warrant generally the property hereby conveyed," it is implied that the grantor and "his heirs and personal representatives, will forever warrant and defend the said property... against the claims and demands of all persons" (N.J.S.A. 46:4-7). These covenants provide the grantee (buyer) a high level of protection against claims on the title.

A lawful warranty 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 warranty deed 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 should meet all state and local 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. Include a completed Affidavit of Consideration for deeds claiming exemption or partial exemption.

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

So far so good. It was reasonably easy to download and complete the form using information found in my closing paperwork. I haven't yet had my form notarized but plan to do so this week and submit the packet to my county auditor.

I thought the process was fairly easy. The price was reasonable. I had a slight problem, some of the words were missing from one page of the documents when I printed it. However, after I saved it to my computer, I was able to print the page in full.

not enough room for legal description. Wouldn't allow me to enter widow status in owner box. Not clear who to send it to so I printed it out and will ask the notary who I use for recording it.

I ordered the Deed package for my state of NJ and the county I needed to prepare the documents. I was able to complete everything that is required to close on an investment property. Fast easy with step by step instructions no matter your situation. Definitely will recommend to family & friends. Save $ instead of paying others to do the same thing you can do yourself.

The process went smoothly and gave me what I needed. As an improvement, I would recommend that deeds.com sends an email when there is a new message in the portal. I didn't get any updates and had to log in to track progress each time.
