North Dakota Deed Forms

North Dakota deed is a legal form that transfers ownership rights in real estate from one party (the “grantor”) to another party (the “grantee”). There are a variety of deed types listed below, and each form has its own intended purpose that can be applied to a number of circumstances. Some deeds are only suitable for use by individuals acting in a fiduciary capacity (e.g., a trustee or estate representative), while the most common deed types are executed by the property owners transferring title. In addition to demonstrating the change in ownership, the deed may also convey warranties to protect the grantee against claims, liens, and other encumbrances affecting the property title.
