A bargain and sale deed is a conveyance of property rights wherein the grantor (owner) guarantees to the grantee (buyer) that during the time the grantor owned the real estate, he/she did nothing to cloud the title to the property.

In Washington, statutory bargain and sale deeds are governed by RCW 64.04.040. The statute defines the covenant to the grantee this way: "the grantor was seized of an indefeasible estate in fee simple, free from encumbrances, done or suffered from the grantor, except the rents and services that may be reserved, and also for quiet enjoyment against the grantor, his heirs and assigns, unless limited by express words contained in such deed; and the grantee, his heirs, executors, administrators and assigns may recover in any action for breaches as if such covenants were expressly inserted."

As with other deeds in Washington, record an executed bargain and sale deed at the recorder's office located in the same county as the land. Recording is the essential final step in land sales -- presenting the deed for entry into the public record keeps the property's chain of title updated and provides notice to any potential buyers about the change in ownership.

It's worth the cost to download the fill in the blank forms. So quick and easy. The lady I spoke to on the phone was super nice and very helpful. She deserves a medal for being so patient with me.

I find your forms hard to use, inasmuch as the forms cannot be converted to a Word Document. Editing and deleting of extra lines is not possible, making for a deed with large blank spaces.
Document that results is not usable for me.

Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We have canceled your order and payment. We do hope you find something more suitable to your needs elsewhere. Have a wonderful day.

It was convenient to be able to download the deed template, instructions, and a completed sample deed all from deeds.com. I was able to complete my deed with little effort. My only complaint is that the editable fields in the pdf document are of fixed size, leaving some large spaces within a sentence, for example: Executed on this 1st day of July ,2020. This makes the printed document look a little peculiar.

It was easy to use the form. The notary said it contained the most recent language which is also helpful.

The website and information is fine. The proof in the pudding, of course, is whether the forms I used now will provide the results I want if the changes are challenged at some future date.
