Pennsylvania special warranty deed is used when a real estate seller (the grantor) transfers ownership to a buyer (the grantee) and partially guarantees the property against encumbrances. This deed warrants that the real estate did not incur liens or other title issues during the grantor’s time of ownership. However, title defects occurring before the grantor acquired the property are not covered by a special warranty deed.

Because the warranty provided in this deed is limited, the grantee runs the risk of encountering latent title issues caused by previous owners. To mitigate this risk, individuals will often seek protection in the form of title insurance.
