A Rhode Island special warranty deed is a legal instrument for conveying real estate that includes a warranty against any encumbrances made while the grantor held the title. However, if the grantee discovers claims incurred during the ownership of previous grantors after the conveyance, they will be solely responsible for defending their title.

Special warranty deeds are regularly used in commercial real estate transactions, foreclosure sales, or other instances where a grantor may be unfamiliar with a property’s history. By obtaining a property title under this type of deed, the grantee is assured of the grantor’s ownership and that the property has not been recently encumbered.
