A Louisiana general warranty deed is used to convey a property title from one party (the vendor) to another (the vendee) while guaranteeing that it is free from encumbrances. While a purchase agreement defines the terms by which a property is sold, a deed is required to transfer its legal ownership from the vendor to the vendee. Under a general warranty deed, the vendor swears that they are the rightful property owner, that the title is free of encumbrances, and that if unforeseen encumbrances come to light after the deed’s execution, they will defend the vendee against said claims.

The completed document must include the purchase price, property description, names and addresses of the vendors, vendees, and (if applicable) their spouses, and be witnessed by two (2) witnesses and a notary public.
