Nebraska Deed Forms

Nebraska deed is a legal tool that conveys (transfers) property ownership from a grantor to a grantee. Deeds are public documents that prove who owns a particular piece of property and who shall be held accountable for defects in the property’s title. With a special warranty deed, the grantee is protected against undisclosed encumbrances caused by the grantor. In the case of a general warranty deed, the grantor will be liable for all title issues, even those that may have occurred before they acquired ownership.

Deeds must be signed by the grantor, notarized, and filed by the grantee with the Register of Deeds. Accompanying the deed must the requisite transfer and documents (see Laws & Requirements section below).
