Alabama Statutory Warranty Deed

The Alabama statutory warranty deed is a document that offers a limited title warranty to the Grantee (buyer)  that the property has no undisclosed encumbrances. It also guarantees that the Grantors heirs will not claim any encumbrances against the Grantee, his heirs, or assigns. The seller’s spouse must also sign their interest in the property. Thus interest may be joint owners, homestead interest, or tenants by the entirety. If the spouse has no interest, this too must be indicated on the deed.
