If you are currently looking to either buy or sell a home, the deed will be one of the most important documents in the process. The deed is the legal piece of paper which is used to transfer ownership of the property from one owner to the next—called a deed transfer. Let the experts at Armour Title help to make this process easier and more streamlined for you or your clients.

Maryland Deed Transfers

Types of Deed Transfers

There are a few different types of deed transfers used in Maryland, and as your trusted Maryland title company we have extensive experience in helping you through the process for each.

Warranty Deeds

Maryland deed transfers are commonly done using what is called a warranty deed. This type of deed offers the best protection for the grantee (home-buyer) because it ensures the grantor and will defend the buyer against any third party claims over the home.

Deeds Without Warranty

These are a special instance deed in which the grantor only warrants that here are no defects on the title while the grantor owned the property listed on the deed. This type of deed offers protection for the buyer at a level below a Maryland warranty deed, but greater than a quitclaim deed.

Quitclaim Deeds

Maryland quitclaim deeds will transfer ownership of a property from the seller to the buyer without listing any guarantees or warranty that the property is free of liens or claims and the title is good. We commonly see this type of deed used when transferring property between family members.
