New York Bargain and Sale Deeds with Covenant Against Grantor

In New York, title to real property can be transferred from one party to another by executing a bargain and sale deed with covenant against grantor. This type of deed is statutory under NY Real Prop. Law Section 258 Statutory Form C.

A bargain and sale deed with covenant conveys whatever interest the grantor holds in the property at the time of execution, with the promise that the grantor "has not done or suffered anything whereby the said premises have been incumbered in any way whatever" (NY Real Prop. Law Section 258 (Statutory Form C)).

There are two types of bargain and sale deeds in New York. One type contains a specific covenant against grantor's acts, while the other does not. Bargain and sale deeds with covenant provide more surety because they guarantee that the property conveyed is without encumbrances made by the grantor. Bargain and sale deeds provide less surety than a deed with full covenants (Statutory Form A), which offers the fullest surety of title because its warranty covers the entire ownership history, even preceding the time the grantor obtained title.

A lawful bargain and sale deed with covenant must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents, including the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status; the consideration given for the transfer; 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 York residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A grant of ownership of real estate to two or more unmarried persons is presumed to create a tenancy in common, unless a joint tenancy is expressly declared. In the case of married persons, a tenancy by entirety is presumed, unless a joint tenancy or tenancy in common is expressly declared (E.P.T. Law Sections 6-2.1, 6-2.2).

As with any conveyance of realty, a bargain and sale deed with covenant requires a complete legal description of the parcel, including the section, block, lot, and unit numbers. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property.

Sign the deed in the presence of a notary public or other authorized official. For a valid transfer, record the deed at the county clerk's office in the county where the property is located. Most counties in New York require a recording page to accompany all documents for recording. This cover page is available on the local county clerk's website, and it factors into the total page count when calculating recording fees.

In New York, the real estate transfer tax is due at the time of recording. File Form TP-584 (Combined Real Estate Transfer Tax Return) with the appropriate county clerk (TAX Law 31-D-1449-EE(2)(d)). Non-residents of New York State must also file an IT-266 Tax Form (Non-Resident Real Property Estimated Income Tax Payment Form) (TAX Law 22-663).

Pursuant to R.P.P. Law 9-333.3, a Real Property Transfer Report is required to accompany all conveyances, excluding deeds of oil and gas or mineral rights. Use Form RP-5217-NYC for real property transfers within the five boroughs of New York City, and use Form RP-5217 for real property transfers in all other counties. Contact the local county clerk's office to confirm the specific local requirements.

Was quick and easy compared to visiting downtown where the recorders office is closed or just the thought of mailing important documents and waiting until someone hopefully reaches back out to you. All responses were timely and process was easy. No complaints.

I ordered a Transfer of Deed on Death document. It was easy to fill in, came with a useful guide and was customized to my county/state. It got the job done and was well worth the money!

Ordered a 'Gift Deed' form
The 'Example' form was most helpful.
The actual form was very detailed, and seemed to 'cover all the bases'

Very pleased. I spent a fair amount of time chasing a blank form only to be told it couldn't be given to me - I had to go through my attorney.
Going thru the deeds.com was a breeze; the blank form looked exactly like one I had filed before :-)
