Oregon Deed Forms

An Oregon deed is a document used to transfer a property title from an owner (the “grantor”) to a buyer or transferee (the “grantee”). The grantee will be provided varying levels of protection against title defects depending on the type of deed used. While deeds that ensure the title is unencumbered are better suited for most homebuyers, family members or parties that trust each other may use a deed that offers less protection (such as quit claim or special warranty deeds) to simplify the transfer process. The completed deed must be signed by the grantor, notarized, and filed with the county clerk where the property is located.
