A Kentucky general warranty deed transfers a property title and gives the grantee (recipient/buyer) the guarantee that said title is free from encumbrances. Encumbrances are liens, mortgages, or other claims on real estate which cloud the title and can prevent the buyer from receiving financing. A general warranty also guarantees that the owner transferring the property (the grantor) has the right to make the conveyance. These assurances protect the grantee from financial and legal liability, providing them with the most secure method of receiving a title.

In Kentucky, deeds must be executed by two (2) witnesses or acknowledged by a notary public/county clerk prior to recording.
