from the grantor (seller) to the grantee (buyer). There are three types of deed forms, and the kind used per situation is determined by how much guarantee the seller gives the buyer. While one type of deed offers the grantee a guarantee of the cleanness of the title, another type offers no guarantees. Still, all deeds must be signed before a notary public and filed in the county recorder’s office.
Statutes - Title 34 (Property), Chapters 1 and 2
Recording (W.S. 1977 § 34-1-118) - Deeds in the state must be documented at the Recorder's Office. It can be found at the County Clerk's Office in many areas.
Signature (W.S. 1977 § 34-1-113) - Required to be endorsed by the seller or grantor in front of the notary public that was commissioned for the task.
Articulation of Consideration (W.S. 1977 § 34-1-142) - This is a required document that’s attached to deeds in Wyoming irrespective of the type of deed.
General Warranty - This is a type of deed that allows the grantor to transfer their interest to another party with a full guarantee of the title. Put another way, they’re guaranteeing the buyer that the title is clean and clear of all liens, claims, or encumbrances.
Quitclaim - This deed, in contrast to the general warranty deed, does not guarantee the title is free from defects. Rather, the grantor is simply passing on the ownership interest they may have in the title. Before using this kind of deed, it’s important to do a detailed title search.
Special Warranty - This deed guarantees that the grantor has not given up any of their rights in the title while they’ve owned it. Anything that happened to the title before they came into possession of it is not guaranteed by this deed.
To compose a deed you should have the legal description of the property handy. The legal description can be found on the previous deed or by doing a property search via the county records office. Oftentimes, this can be done online but some counties still require you to come in person.
Once you find the property, all of the relevant information will be contained there - including the legal description. Note that the legal description is not the same things as the address. Here’s an example of the steps you’d need to follow when searching online.
Stage 1 - Visit this website and pick the county the real estate is situated in.
Stage 2 - After choosing your county you will need to tap on either an Assessor or Recorder interface that peruses 'Go to Online Data'.
Stage 3 - After choosing you will want to do a search using the grantor's name, property address, and some other organization the county offers. In the wake of making your determination, you will be furnished with a rundown of matching properties.
Stage 4 - On the property card, you will want to track down all the essential lawful data for entering your legal description into the deed, like Deed Book and Page Numbers, Document Numbers, and some other portrayals.
