Alabama Deed Forms

An Alabama deed is a legal instrument used to transfer ownership of property and land located in Alabama. Each type of deed comes with a different level of protection regarding the property’s title. Deeds that offer greater guarantees are much safer for transactions between unacquainted parties; for example, a general warranty deed assures the buyer that the title is free of issues dating back to the very first owner. In order to execute a deed, the parties will need to complete and sign the form, have the document notarized, and record it with the county recorder.
