TX General Warranty Deed

A General Warranty Deed is a document that transfers title with both express and implied warranties. The Grantor warrants the entire chain of title all the way back to sovereign government. This type of instrument is the strongest form of deed in Texas. A sample conveyance clause is detailed below:

Sample Conveyance Clause

Grantor, for the Consideration and subject to the Reservations from Conveyance and the Exceptions to Conveyance and Warranty, grants, and conveys to Grantee the Property, together with all and singular the rights and appurtenances thereto in any way belonging, to have and to hold it to Grantee and Grantee's heirs, successors, and assigns forever. Grantor binds Grantor and Grantor's heirs and successors to warrant and forever defend all and singular the Property to Grantee and Grantee's heirs, successors, and assigns against every person whomsoever lawfully claiming or to claim the same or any part thereof, except as to the Reservations from Conveyance and the Exceptions to Conveyance and Warranty.

Why Use This Type of Deed?

The General Warranty Deed is the most common type of deed used in residential transactions. While it provides the most protection for the grantee, the warranty can be limited via "subject to" clauses in the deed. The conveyance itself can also be limited via reservations in the deed by the grantor. It is wise to consult a real estate attorney about the use of General Warranty Deeds in Texas.
