How a Transfer Occurs

The transfer of title to real property is almost always done through a document called a deed. On occasion, transfer of title happens by operation of law, such as when a married couple holds title to property together, and one spouse dies. In that situation, a deed is not needed to transfer title to the surviving spouse. Two other ways that a title to real property can be transferred include:

  • Device in a person’s last will and testament
  • Certificate of title issued by a court as part of a foreclosure

Most often, it is a deed between buyer and seller which transfers the title of ownership to a piece of real estate. There are different types of deed transfers, including:

  • Quit claim deeds
  • General warranty deeds
  • Special warranty deeds
  • Deeds of trust
  • Deeds of release
  • Beneficiary deeds
