A South Carolina deed is used to convey a property title from a grantor (the owner) to a grantee (the recipient). The deed will state whether the new owner is protected against title encumbrances (liens, unpaid taxes, claims, etc.) and if the transferor has the legal right to transfer the title. While warranty against encumbrances is not always necessary, such as in transfers between family members, it is a common covenant included in deeds used in property sales (through warranty deeds).
