A special warranty deed can be used to convey title to real property in Oregon. A statutory form for this real estate deed is provided in ORS 93.855. A deed that is substantially in the form prescribed by statute will have the same effect as a warranty deed in Oregon, except that the covenant of freedom from encumbrances is limited to those encumbrances done or suffered by the grantor. Additionally, the covenant of warranty is limited to read "That the grantor warrants and will defend the title to the property against all persons who may lawfully claim the same by, through, or under the grantor." If the grantor in a special warranty deed wants to exclude any encumbrances or other interests from the scope of the covenants, such exclusions must be expressly set forth in the deed (93.855). The statutory form for a special warranty deed is not mandatory. Other forms are permissive and may be used for a conveyance of real property.

Before a special warranty deed can be considered for recordation by a county clerk, it is required to be signed by the grantor and acknowledged before any judge of the Supreme Court, circuit judge, county judge, justice of the peace, or notary public within the state of Oregon. No seal of the grantor, corporate or otherwise, is required to be on the deed (93.410). A county recorder will not accept an instrument for recording if it does not contain the original signatures of the person executing the deed and the original signature of the officer before whom the acknowledgment was made (93.804). A mandatory statement, provided in the Oregon Revised Statutes 93.040, is required to be included in a special warranty deed.

An unrecorded special warranty deed will be valid between the parties to the deed, but will not provide notice to third parties. In order to provide constructive notice of the contents, a special warranty deed should be recorded in the office of the county clerk in the county where the property is located. A special warranty deed that has not been recorded as provided by law is void as against a subsequent purchaser in good faith and for a valuable consideration of the same real property, or portion thereof, whose conveyance is first filed for record, and as against the heirs and assigns of such subsequent purchaser (93.640).

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

I love whoever is behind this website. I bought the wrong form and I told them and they refunded me asap! I figured out which form I need days later and bought it just now. They didn't have to refund me for my own mistake. That was very kind. I'll be returning for any other forms I may need and will tell others too. Thank you so much!!!!!

I used Deeds.com to record two judgments with the County Recorder's Office. The site was very easy to use and I had my recorded copies back the very next day. I highly recommend their service!

Finding and downloading necessary forms, and especially the example forms, were tremendously easy and trouble free, and the fact the forms were updated recently was a big selling point. If other forms are needed, this is were I'm coming.

I appreciated the fact that the forms were by Texas County and I knew I had the right form. The form were fairly easy to complete. I had trouble completing the form because the property description was long and kept disappearing and I had to re-type. It would also have helped it I could have saved and not had to start over every time.

Navigating the site was fine, but the service was not able to find my deed. Still have not received my refund.

Reply from Staff

Thanks for your feedback Kenneth. Sorry we were not able to pull the deed for your property. We voided your payment on December 28, 2018. Sometimes, depending on your financial institution, it can take a few days for the pending charge (hold) to expire.

I was very impressed with the speed at which information was retrieved on my very first search. Unfortunately, the county we were looking for is behind times and has not digitized its information. I will be using Deeds.Com again and appreciate that I was not charged for no information being returned back. Thank You

The Transfer on Death Deed paperwork was easy to complete, as it included a detailed guide and a completed example. We encountered no issues recording the document with our County. Thanks to Deeds.com, we were also able to save time and money by utilizing a DIY approach for our situation.
