Wyoming Grant Deed

In Wyoming, title to real property can be transferred from one party to another using a grant deed. Every conveyance of real estate in Wyoming passes all the estate of the grantor, unless the intent to pass a lesser estate is expressly stated in the deed or is implied in the terms of the grant (Wyo. Stat. Ann. 34-2-101).

Use a grant deed to transfer title with warranties on the part of the grantor that he or she has not previously conveyed the estate and that he or she has not encumbered the property, except for any restrictions noted in the deed. Grant deeds offer more protection for the buyer than quitclaim deeds, but less than warranty deeds. A quitclaim deed offers no warranty of title, while a warranty deed guarantees, among other things, that the grantor holds clear title to the real property being conveyed and protects the grantee from any future claims to the property.

A lawful grant deed includes the grantor's full name, mailing address, and marital status, the consideration given for the transfer, and the grantee's full name, marital status, vesting, and mailing address. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership. For Wyoming residential property, the primary methods for holding title are tenancy in common, joint tenancy, and tenancy by entirety. A conveyance of real estate to two unmarried persons creates a tenancy in common, unless another intention is clearly specified (Wyo. Stat. Ann. 34-1-140). Tenancy by entirety is only available to married couples, and is the presumed vesting unless otherwise stated.

As with any conveyance of realty, a grant deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. Recite the prior deed reference to maintain a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. The finished copy of the deed must be signed by the grantor and notarized. Record the original completed deed, along with any additional materials, with the clerk's office of the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to verify accepted forms of payment.

All Wyoming conveyances must include a completed Statement of Consideration. Find this form on the county clerk's website, or through the Wyoming State Board of Equalization website. It is the responsibility of the buyer (or the buyer's agent) to fully complete the Statement of Consideration (Wyo. Stat. Ann 34-1-142). Check with the local recording office to confirm information about recording fees, transfer taxes, and any other requirements.
