Preparing Deeds in Texas

The Real Estate Law can be complex and when you need a deed prepared, you will need a Real Estate Attorney to help you out. So now you might be asking what the process in preparing a deed in Texas is and the answer is simple.

Deed Preparation

What is a deed? It is a legal document that conveys the ownership of a parcel of land or any other type of real property from the seller to the buyer. It must be signed by both parties and duly registered in the county’s record office. A deed serves as a piece of evidence of your ownership over a piece of property. In Texas, there are lots of services offered when it comes to Preparation of Deeds Arlington.

Kinds of deeds:

Warranty Deed

In this particular deed, the owner swears that he or she has the full authority to sell that property. It must pass a title examination, which will include the following:

  • The home’s ownership history.
  • Tax issues pertaining to the home.
  • Any other issues that may arise during deed preparation or conveyance of title.

Types of warranty deeds in Texas:

  • Special Warranty Deed

The owner of this title swears that there are no infirmities in the title and that he acted in good faith. In other words, he has not acted to affect the validity of the title, but if someone else caused the defect then the owner cannot be held accountable.

  • General Warranty Deed

This holds the owner of the property responsible for whatever happens. Here the owners guarantee that the property is free from any defect. Should a problem arise, the owner cannot escape culpability. Quitclaim Deed

In a quitclaim deed it states that the grantor waives all his claims on a certain piece of property. It also limits the heir’s rights over an estate property. Under Texas law it provides that when a title is transferred by virtue of a quitclaim deed it cannot be subjected to any type of insurance.

Deed without Warranty

In this type of deed no warranties are made, so if any title issues arise, the owner cannot be held accountable. If you agree to this particular set-up then be prepared for some setbacks and legal problems that may come up. In fact, most who agree to enter into this type of set-up encounter legal issues and troubles in having their deeds registered and prepared.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?

Deed Preparation requires legal experience and expertise since it can be a complicated legal process, especially if there are other issues that may be attached to the property like unpaid taxes, equitable division of assets in cases of divorce, and other legal matters.
