A deed is an instrument by which an owner (the grantor) transfers an interest in land to a new owner (the grantee). No consideration is required to make the deed effective. The deed is necessary to transfer title to land even if it is a gift. It has no effect, and title does not pass until the deed has been delivered. The recording of the is not required to make the deed effective to pass title between the buyer and the seller. However, recording is necessary so that the public will know that the buyer is the present owner.

A quitclaim deed transfers whatever interest, if any, a grantor may have in the property, without specifying the interest in any way. No warranty of ownership is given. This type of deed is commonly used to clear title to property. A warranty deed transfers a specified interest and warrants or guarantees that this interest is transferred. The grantor warrants that the title is good, that the transfer is proper, and that there are no liens other than stated in the deed. The grantee can sue if the warranty is breached.
