What is a general warranty deed?

A general warranty deed is a type of property deed used to transfer ownership of real estate to one or more new owners. Unlike a quit claim deed, which makes no title warranties, a general warranty deed guarantees that the seller is the rightful owner of the property and is selling it free of any liens or defects (unless explicitly stated in the deed).
