New Jersey Deed Forms

New Jersey deed is a legal document executed by a grantor (seller) to transfer ownership of real property to a grantee (buyer). A deed denotes a property’s current title holder while conveying any title assurances and covenants the grantor provides. Under a general warranty deed, the grantee is assured the property has no encumbrances (e.g., liens, mortgages) and is therefore protected in the event of title issues down the line. However, with a quit claim deed, the grantee is transferred property with no title assurances whatsoever (standard when transferring property between family members).
