Florida General Warranty Deed Form

Florida general warranty deeds are used to transfer property from a grantor to a grantee in Florida. When a property is transferred using this deed, the grantor provides a full warranty that he’s the legal owner of the property and has the right to convey the property.  Nevertheless, a title search is still advised before the deal is closed.
