Warranty Deed Versus Quit Claim Deed

In Washington, deeds are defined by statute, and not all deeds are equal.

When it comes to warranty deeds and quit claim deeds, they both transfer title to real estate, but they differ in many other ways.

Warranty Deed

A warranty deed includes warranties that the grantor owns all the rights to the property, has the power to convey it, that the property is free from encumbrances, and that the grantee’s title and right to possession will not be challenged. If title or possession is challenged, the grantor will defend the grantee’s title.

Quit Claim Deed

A quit claim deed contains no similar promises or warranties.
