Sometimes called a limited warranty deed, this deed does not provide the grantee with the same guarantees as a general warranty deed. The special warranty deed usually only provides a covenant of seisin and a covenant against encumbrances limited to encumbrances occurring after the grantor originally acquired the title. This type of deed is commonly used by agents of the owner, such as executors. For more information, see the "All About Deeds" article in the "Real Estate In-Depth" section.
