An Idaho special warranty deed transfers possession of a property to a buyer (the “grantee”) with the promise that the land is free of any encumbrances made by the seller (the “grantor”). An encumbrance is a third-party claim against the property’s title, such as a mortgage, easement, or lien. The grantor also guarantees that they are the property owner and have the legal right to transfer the title. The receiving party of a special warranty deed should be aware that the covenants therein only protect against defects caused by the grantor; if a title issue arises as a result of a prior owner, the grantee will be responsible for resolving it.
