Vermont Deed Forms

Updated on October 26th, 2022

Vermont deed is a legal instrument that records a property title’s change in ownership. A deed will state the grantor and grantee’s names and a description of the property, in addition to warranties or a guarantee of the grantor’s right to transfer the title. Depending on the type of deed, the language contained therein may include covenants to determine who will be legally responsible for claims against the property title, such as unpaid debts to contractors or property tax liens.

Deeds must be signed by the grantor, acknowledged before a notary public, and filed in the town or county clerk’s office.
