All you need to know is that any time you make a change in your real estate status, you need a real estate deed of one type or the other for the transaction to be valid. Deeds are needed even if you are not buying or selling property. If you add or delete a name from the title, you need a new deed. However, you cannot just delete a name from a deed without that persons permission. They have to agree to be removed from the deed, sign the deed, and have their signature notarized.
There are special circumstances when other real estate deeds are necessary. For instance, if the real estate transaction involves property with unpaid taxes, a tax deed is usually required to clarify and indemnify the conveyance of the title to the buyer.
If a family member wants to transfer property to another member of the family, a gift deed might be needed. This assures the grantee that the property is his or hers even if no money has exchanged hands.
A grant deed provides two guarantees. One is that the seller (grantor) states that the property has not been sold to anyone else. The other is that the grantor warrants (promises) that the property title has no encumbrances other than those already revealed to the buyer (grantee). Typical information in the grant deed includes a granting clause, which transfers the title from the grantor to the grantee, the names of the grantor and the grantee, and details of the property being transferred.
