In West Virginia, title to real property can be transferred from one party to another using a grant deed.

A statutory form for conveying real property is codified at West Virginia Code Section 36-3-5, with room to customize the form as needed for the situation. Typical covenants of a grant deed include that the grantor has not previous sold the interest now being conveyed and that the premises are free from encumbrances, excepting those noted in the instrument. Statutory covenants are codified at W. Va. Code 36-4, and require specific language in the body of the deed.

To be valid and to provide a quality public record, the section of the deed that details the words and terms of conveyance (granting clause) must name both the grantor and grantee. It also includes a legal description detailed enough to identify the specific parcel within its district.

The granting party must sign the deed in the presence of a notary public. Property owned by a married person requires the spouse's signature to release potential marital rights, regardless of whether the spouse holds a direct interest in the property.

Deeds in this state are void as to creditors and subsequent purchasers for valuable consideration without notice until it is recorded in the county where the property is located (W. Va. Code 40-1-9). In other words, record it or it didn't happen.

To record a grant deed with a county clerk in West Virginia, the instrument must meet state and county requirements of form and content for documents pertaining to an interest in real property. Deeds recorded in West Virginia are subject to a transfer tax based on the purchase price (consideration) listed on the deed, or, if no consideration is listed, the fair market value of the property. Transfers with no consideration require a Declaration of Consideration or Value. All recorded deeds must be accompanied by a Sales Listing Form.

If the grantor is not a West Virginia resident, tax withholding pursuant to W. Va. Code Section 11-21-71b is also required.

Consult a lawyer with questions about grant deeds, or for any other issues related to real property in West Virginia.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

Although I was given quite a bit of information, I wanted my property title. I was not informed of what I would receive before I paid for this service.

Great service ! Hawaii is not a "forms state" so unfortunately the public has no way to get templates on our local gov site but deeds.com to the rescue. The template was affordable and easy to use and successfully recorded. Great to use when you don't need to involve title or attorneys for simple deed changes, thank you

The deeds.com website is incredibly easy to navigate and the nearly instantaneous chat function allowed me to quickly correct an entry error I made uploading a document. The day after enrolling and uploading the document I had a copy of the document properly filed. Very efficient; very effective.

Wonderful forms. It's nice that they were formatted perfectly for my county, it's real easy to miss a requirement (margines, font size, and so on) and end up with a rejection or higher recording fee. Good job folks!
