Most people think of Real Estate as the property owned, but this also encompasses the land and those which belong to or is attached to the land, which include non-movable structures such as houses (exclude mobile homes), buildings, trees, shrubbery and underground minerals, which are permanently affixed to the land.
A deed is an instrument which transfers ownership of real property from one owner(s) to another owner(s). Two type of deeds that are used in Alabama for the transferring of real property ownership are:
A Warranty Deed is most commonly used deed in purchase and sale transactions. This deed guarantees that the title to the property is good and has no claims or liens.
Quit Claim Deed
A Quit Claim Deed (also incorrectly referred to as Quitclaim Deed and Quick Claim Deed) transfers the owner(s) interest without any warranties or guarantees of good title and free of claims and liens. This deed is most commonly used in non-sale transactions such as transfers between family members.
Life Estate Deed
A Grantor by means of a Life Estate Deed leaves life estate interest to a person(s) after Grantor’s death. A Life Estate is where a natural person owns all the benefits of ownership in the property during their life with the property going to a remainder person after the death of the life tenant. It is an interest in real or personal property that is limited in duration to the lifetime of the designated person.
