Nebraska general warranty deed, also referred to as a “warranty deed,” conveys property ownership to a buyer (grantee) with a promise that the seller (grantor) owns the real estate and that the property title is unencumbered. The deed’s warranties protect the buyer from liability against title defects, such as easements and mechanic’s liens. If the buyer discovers title defects following their purchase, they could sue the seller for a breach of warranty. Likewise, if a third party claims ownership of the conveyed real estate, the seller would be obligated to defend the title. The deed becomes effective once signed by the grantor, notarized, and recorded with the county Register of Deeds.
