Greetings! This is Dave from, and in this video, we’re unraveling the intricate layers of information embedded in a property deed. Whether you’re an investor, buyer, or a title researcher, understanding the elements within a property deed is paramount. So, let’s dive into the details!

The Anatomy of a Property Deed

Before we delve into the nitty-gritty, it’s crucial to differentiate between an electronic or online record and an actual property deed. Electronic records often provide limited information, typically condensed into a single line. The true depth lies within the official property deed.

Key Elements to Explore

  1. Grantor and Grantee:
    • The grantor, the party relinquishing property rights (usually the seller).
    • The grantee, the party receiving the property rights (typically the buyer).
  2. Consideration:
    • The price of the property, known as consideration, crucial for validating the real estate transaction.
  3. Execution and Recording Dates:
    • The date the deed was signed (executed).
    • The date it was officially recorded in the records.
  4. Bar Code:
    • A barcode indicating the deed’s status as an official record in the county or recording venue.
  5. Signatures:
    • Signatures of the seller, borrower (if applicable), witnesses, and notaries.
    • Witnesses and notaries validate the authenticity of the signatures.
  6. Book and Page Reference:
    • The unique identifier in the deed book where the document is recorded.
  7. Send To Block:
    • Specifies where the original deed is sent after recording, often to a title company or attorney.
  8. Legal Description:
    • A detailed paragraph outlining the property being referenced, ensuring accurate identification.
  9. Terms and Conditions:
    • Specifies conditions of the deed, exceptions, and may reference other documents or statutes.
    • A warranty deed, for instance, includes guarantees with certain exceptions.
  10. Notations:
    • Handwritten notes or notations, possibly added during the property closing process, which may carry additional insights.

Unveiling the Details

Reading a property deed isn’t just about the transaction; it’s about understanding the nuances that impact the property’s legal standing. Terms, conditions, and notations can reveal exceptions and references vital to a comprehensive comprehension.

The Importance of a Detailed Review

An electronic database search may provide a snippet of information, but a detailed review of the physical deed is imperative. Legal descriptions, exceptions, and handwritten notations often escape electronic summaries.
