Vermont special warranty deed is a real estate conveyance document in which the grantor takes responsibility for encumbrances that occurred after they obtained the title, but not before. Also referred to in Vermont as the “limited warranty deed,” the document warrants that there are no liens or third-party claims to the title, and that they hold fee simple interest. By transferring real estate with a special warranty deed, the grantee accepts that encumbrances (e.g., third-party claims, liens, unpaid taxes) from previous grantors may exist and will become their responsibility.

Foreclosed real estate is often conveyed with a special warranty deed, as the grantor can sell the property without being liable for encumbrances made under a previous owner.
