An Iowa general warranty deed transfers property ownership from a grantor to a grantee with covenants that ensure its title is clear and that the grantor has the right to transfer. This type of deed is the most commonly used and is generally executed in conjunction with a purchase agreement. Under a general warranty deed, the grantor warrants that the title has no claims against it during their period of ownership and that of any previous owners. If a lien or other encumbrance does come to light, the grantor will be held liable to defend the title on the grantee’s behalf.
