What is the West Virginia Special Warranty Deed?

Special warranty deeds are commonly used to convey real property in West Virginia. A statutory form for conveying real property is codified at West Virginia Code Section 36-3-5. When a deed contains words of special warranty under Section 36-4-3, the grantor promises to warrant and defend the property for the grantee against the claims and demands of the grantor and all persons claiming by, through, or under the grantor.

The warranty is limited to the time the grantor held title and does not guarantee the quality of the title past the grantor's ownership. Therefore, a special warranty deed offers less protection for the buyer than a general warranty deed.

In addition to the covenant of warranty, a special warranty deed can include additional statutory covenants under W. Va. Code Chapter 36, Article 4, including right to convey, quiet possession, a special covenant against encumbrances, and a covenant of further assurances.

To be valid and to provide a quality public record, both the grantor and grantee must be named in the section of the deed that details the words and terms of conveyance (conveyancing clause). In addition, the property must be able to be identified by inclusion of a legal description, including the district in which the parcel is located.

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 because of potential marital rights, regardless of whether the spouse holds a direct interest in the property.

A special warranty deed in this state is 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). To record a special warranty 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. All recorded deeds must be accompanied by a Sales Listing Form.

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. For deeds having no consideration, a Declaration of Consideration or Value is required.

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 special warranty deeds or for any other issues related to transferring real property in West Virginia.

Review: As promised, my forms were immediately ready for download. The forms were exactly what i wanted. I couldnt be happier and i cant even guess how much money i saved. They were even formatted to the exact font, spacing and margin used by my county. It is obvious a lot of time and effort was put into the preparation of these documents. They are absolutely perfect. Check it out, you wont be disappointed and the price is much less than i expected. Don caldwell

Name: Beverly L J.

Review: The process for receiving the quitclaim document worked well. I couldn't use the document. If I had been able to view the document before I had to pay for it, I would have known, but that isn't how your process works. However, that's the only snag I found. Otherwise the process for paying and downloading the document worked well. Thank you.

Reply from Staff on August 7th, 2020

Thank you for your feedback Beverly. We certainly do not want you to pay for something you are unable to use. To that end we have canceled your order and refunded your payment. We do hope that you find something more suitable to your needs. Have a wonderful day.

Review: This was the easiest, quickest, most understandable way I've seen yet to retrieve deeds from various counties. The government websites are "clunky" and each one seems different than the other. I like this service and will use them again in the future. NANCY

Review: The process sure was easy and fast. Not sure why a rep would question why I am requesting an exhibit page on the Deed when that's a common practice here in AZ. They recorded it the way I sent it so all good.
