A Grant Deed is the most commonly used kind of deed in California. It is used by the owner of the property (known as the Grantor) to grant all interest and rights held in the property to another person (known as the Grantee). The Grant Deed also warrants that title to the property is not otherwise encumbered, except other than those that have been previously disclosed, and that the title has not already been transferred to another party by the Grantor. In some ways the California Grant Deed is similar to a Warranty Deed used in other states.

Some of the important provisions included in this California Grant Deed are:
  • Recording Area: An area reserved for use by the Recorder;
  • Transfer Tax: The amount of the documentary transfer tax;
  • Name and Address of Parties: The names and addresses of the Grantor and Grantee;
  • Location of Property: City, County and legal description of where the property;
  • Signatures: The signatures of the parties to the deed; and
  • Notary Acknowledgment: An area for notarization. Notarization is often required before a deed can be recorded as a public record.
