Title to real property in Washington can be transferred by a real estate deed. Every deed in this state is required to be in writing, signed by the party bound by it, and acknowledged by the party before someone authorized to take acknowledgments of deeds (RCW 64.04.020). A warranty deed can be in substantially the form offered in the Revised Code of Washington 64.04.030, without express covenants. This type of deed, when duly executed, is considered to be a conveyance in fee simple to the grantee, his or her heirs, and assigns with covenants on the part of the grantor that (1) at the time of the making and delivery of such deed, the grantor was lawfully seized of an indefeasible estate in fee simple in and to the premises described in the deed, and had good right and full power to convey the same, (2) that the property was free from all encumbrances, and (3) that the grantor warrants to the grantee, his or her heirs and assigns, the quiet and peaceable possession of such premises and will defend the title thereto against all persons who may lawfully claim the same (RCW 64.04.030). The grantor's after-acquired title in the land that has been sold and conveyed will pass to the grantee in a warranty deed (RCW64.04.070). A warranty deed is commonly used in a transaction where the buyer wants assurances as to the title of the property.
The acknowledgment of a warranty deed can be taken in Washington before a justice or clerk of the Supreme Court, before a judge or clerk of the court of appeals, a judge of the superior court or qualified court commissioner thereof, a county auditor, or a qualified notary public (RCW 64.08.010). The acknowledgment of a warranty deed for lands situated in Washington may be taken in any other state before any person authorized to take acknowledgments of deeds by the laws of such state, but unless the acknowledgment is taken before a commissioner appointed by the governor, or before the clerk of a court of record of such state, or before a notary public or other officer having a seal of office, the deed should be accompanied by a certificate of acknowledgment under the seal of said court attached to the deed (RCW 64.08.020). The officer taking acknowledgments of a warranty deed within this state shall also certify the act by a certificate of acknowledgment that is written on or attached to the deed (RCW 64.08.050).
A warranty deed that has been acknowledged by the person executing it and is properly certified can be recorded in the office of the county auditor in the county where the property is located. A warranty deed that is not recorded will be void as against a subsequent purchaser or mortgagee in good faith and for a valuable consideration from the same vendor and his or her heirs or devisees, of the same real property or portion thereof, whose conveyance is first duly recorded. A deed is considered recorded the moment it is filed for record (RCW 65.08.070).
