A deed is an instrument that transfers title from one party to another. It is an actual document that is signed and notarized with a legal description and is recorded at the recorder’s office.
There are many different types of deeds in Ohio — not just one deed that transfers property. We have general deeds, limited deeds, judiciary deeds, quit claim deeds, and survivorship deeds depending on the type of transaction and who is transferring the property.
A general warranty deed means they are warranting the title through all prior title owners. The type of seller will determine the type of deed.
