A Warranty Deed is the most common means of transferring ownership of real estate properties in North Carolina.
In a warranty deed, the grantor (seller) covenants that:
- he or she has good and marketable title to the real estate,
- he or she has the authority and power to transfer the title to the buyer, and
- he or she will forever defend the buyer's right to possession of the property.
You can sell your property by filling out the North Carolina Warranty Deed, signing it, having it notarized and recording it with the County Clerk.
