Idaho deed forms transfer property between sellers and buyers. Different types of transfers require separate Idaho property deeds, including:
- Idaho Warranty Deed
- Idaho Quit Claim Deed
- Idaho Special Warranty Deed
- Idaho Deed of Trust
By understanding when to use each form, one can create an official notice about who owns a property and whether its interest gets transferred.
An Idaho general warranty deed guarantees that the seller has the title, interest, and right to the property, meaning they can legally sell the property to a buyer.
The Idaho warranty deed proves that real estate belongs to the seller and is free from claims and liens that could prevent one from buying it.
An Idaho quitclaim deed does not guarantee that a seller has the legal authority to sell a property. Instead, it says that the seller must sell their interest to the buyer.
Generally, an Idaho quit claim deed is an informal arrangement because it conveys minimal official information. If someone you aren’t related to offers a quitclaim deed form, you should go to the county recorder’s office and perform a title search.
An Idaho special warranty deed lands between warranty and quitclaim. The seller guarantees that they did not transfer interest to someone else because of their ownership. However, they do not prove that there wasn’t a transfer from people who owned it before them.
Unless you are presented with an Idaho special warranty deed form by a trusted family member, you should conduct a title search to learn more about the property.
An Idaho deed of trust records mortgage interest. The property cannot be sold without paying off the loan by registering this information at the county recorder’s office. A deed of trust gives notice to future buyers and lenders that the property has a preexisting mortgage.
