Wisconsin Deed Forms

Wisconsin deed is a document that records a transfer of real estate between two (2) parties; the grantor (the title holder) and the grantee (the receiving party). Deeds ensure that a property title’s ownership and the transfer thereof is property documented, and they detail which party will be liable for encumbrances and liens against said title.

A deed can either safeguard against property claims or provide no assurances whatsoever to the grantee upon transfer; thus, the grantee’s knowledge of the title history, and the nature of the relationship between grantor and grantee should be taken into account when deciding which deed type to use.
