Understanding California Grant Deeds
Burbank Real Estate Attorney with Over a Decade of Experience
When a piece of real estate is involved in a transaction, the buyer expects
to be assured of certain things before they sign any paperwork. Confidence
in the property they’re purchasing and in the seller’s intentions
are important for success, hence the need for a California grant deed.
This document is often used in the transfer of property ownership as a
way to guarantee various factors to the seller. Whether you’re on
the buying or the selling end of a real estate transaction, you may benefit

What is the purpose of a grant deed?
A grant deed finds itself in the middle of quitclaim deeds and warranty
deeds in regards to the amount of guarantees it provides. Its main purpose
is to transfer a property title and show proof that one person actually
owns the property. A grant deed is important because if a property dispute
ever occurs, the deed is often checked to verify ownership.
A grant deed offers a buyer two guarantees:
- That the property has not been sold to anyone else
- That the house is not under any restrictions which have not been shared
with the buyer
These guarantees inspire confidence in any buyer, both in the property
they are purchasing and in the trustworthiness of their transaction. The
buyer no longer has to worry about the possibility of any taxes owed on
the property that might prohibit their purchase.
Grant deeds are similar to other deeds in that they require certain piece
of information to be considered legitimate. A granting clause, buyer and
seller names, property descriptions, and signatures are all necessary
in the state of California. Before you pursue a grant deed, it may be
wise to obtain trusted legal counsel. Attorney Rios has nearly 15
years of experience and awards to validate her assistance.
The last thing you want is for your real estate transaction to fall through,
losing both time and money.
