  4. Limited (Special) Warranty

An Ohio limited warranty deed is a form whereby real estate ownership is conveyed to a buyer (“grantee”) with a guarantee that no title encumbrances were made by the seller (“grantor”). Also known as a “special warranty deed,” this document does not warrant against title issues caused by previous grantors in the chain of title. For instance, if an old owner failed to pay their property tax, the seller wouldn’t be responsible since the issue occurred before they acquired the property. The protection afforded to buyers in this deed, while limited, is still more desirable than a quit claim deed, which conveys ownership with no warranties whatsoever.
