A Rhode Island deed is a written document used to transfer a property title to a new owner (the “grantee”). A deed will provide the grantee with varying levels of protection against title encumbrances depending on the type of instrument used. A warranty deed will ensure the grantee that the current owner (the “grantor”) has the right to sell the property and that the title is free of defects. Quit claim deeds, on the other hand, transfer the title without assurances of a clean title or that the grantor has the right to do so.
