Delaware Deed Forms

A Delaware deed records the conveyance of real estate from a transferor to a transferee. Besides officially transferring real estate ownership, a deed often provides covenants that protect the receiving party (called the “grantee”). For example, a general warranty deed guarantees that the property has no title issues, liens, or encumbrances whatsoever. A quit claim deed makes no assurances regarding the property’s title and is commonly used for conveyances between a spouse or family members.

For the deed to be valid, it must be signed by the grantor in the presence of a notary public and recorded in the county recorder’s office.
