Arkansas Deed Forms

An Arkansas deed is used to legally transfer a property title from a grantor (previous owner) to a grantee (new owner). Different deeds provide the grantee with varying levels of security. For example, a warranty deed will provide the grantee with a guarantee that the title is clean, free of any encumbrances or ownership claims. A quit claim deed, on the other hand, provides no such assurances and is usually reserved for transfers between family members or trusted friends.

Before a deed is deemed valid, it must be notarized and signed by two (2) disinterested witnesses, after which it may be filed with the local circuit court.
