*Supplemental forms (forms other than the actual deed form) are made available as a courtesy with your order. Supplemental forms come directly from the state or local jurisdiction that requires them, we offer no support for the supplemental forms, we did not make them.
In Texas, a grant deed conveys title to real property with implied covenants. By including the words "grant" or "convey," the grantor guarantees that he/she has not transferred title to the property to anyone other than the grantee, and that, at the time of transfer, the estate is free from impediments. Implied covenants carry the same legal implications as if they were explicitly stated (TEX. PROP CODE 5.023).
The document must state the grantor's full name and marital status, the consideration given for the transfer, and the grantee's full name, marital status, vesting information, and mailing address. Include a complete legal description of the parcel, and recite the source of title to maintain a clear chain of title, detailing any restrictions associated with the property. The document must be signed and acknowledged by the grantor in the presence of two credible witnesses or a certified officer (TEX. PROP CODE 12.001b).
Depending on the nature of the transaction, the deed might also require supporting and/or supplemental documentation. Record the completed deed, along with any additional materials, in the clerk's office of the county where the property is located.
Using a Grant Deed in Texas
A deed is a legal document that transfers real property from one party to another. In Texas, property owners can use a grant deed to transfer real estate with implied covenants of title. By including the words "grant" or "convey," the grantor (seller) guarantees that he/she has not transferred title to the property to anyone other than the grantee (buyer), and that, at the time of legal transfer of property, the estate is free from any impediments to the transfer. Implied covenants carry the same legal implications as if they were explicitly stated (TEX. PROP CODE 5.023).
A lawful grant deed includes the grantor's full name and marital status, the consideration given for the transfer, and the grantee's full name, marital status, vesting, and mailing address. Depending on the nature of the transaction, the deed might also require supporting and/or supplemental documentation. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership. For Texas residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and community property (TEX. EST CODE 111.001, TEX. FAM CODE 3.003).
As with any conveyance of realty, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the source of title in order to confirm a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. Record the completed deed, along with any additional materials, in the clerk's office of the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to verify accepted forms of payment.
In Texas, an unrecorded deed (or instrument) "is binding on a party to the instrument, on the party's heirs, and on a subsequent purchaser who does not pay a valuable consideration or who has notice of the instrument" (TEX. PROP CODE 13.001). This means that, even if a grant deed is unrecorded, it is still a binding document that applies to parties who have signed or acknowledged it.

Very Easy and great resource!
Easy. Expensive though. $18 for the form and it was only $9 to file it.
This was so easy! Doing it this way saved me a bundle. I used the example form to make sure mine was correct. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
The form would have been perfect except for the fact that the bottom section where the Notary County and State should be could not be changed. I live in Louisiana and the Notary is Louisiana but I can not change it on the form. This means I will have to reproduce the form myself unless you can provided a new download where that field can be changed. I did send this information already but have not had a reply yet. If you can help I would appreciate it very much. Thank you.
Easy to fill and understand. Great purchase
Winner!! Very Nice Forms!! Ill be back for sure!

I have bought forms and directions before from other companies. Yours are by far the most user friendly and comprehensive I have found. Very impressive that the forms were tailored not only to my state but to my county. Thank you. The only reason you arent getting a Ten (10) in rank is because I also had personal property I would have liked to either incorporate into the real property quitclaim or had a separate quit claim for it.
Easier than I expected the instructions were a BIG help.
The form worked fine. The instructions and the fee schedules were the most helpful. I could do without the advertising cover page.
Loved the forms the information an examples where very helpful. The only problem was on an Arizona Quit Claim that I wanted to have notarized in California the form already had only AZ notary information on the form would be better if county and State where left blank like the example form.
Had a really good experience ordering and using these forms. great site easy to use. great forms.
