The Grant Deed is the legal document recorded by a county government that conveys property ownership. The Grant Deed usually lists any transfer and city taxes required at the time the property is purchased and is only valid if notarized. In short, if you need to prove that you own a property, provide a copy of your Grant Deed.
While you should always keep a copy of your Grant Deed readily available, if you ever misplace it, you can go to your county recorder's office to obtain a copy. Because the Grant Deed is a legally filed public document, anyone can request it to confirm ownership of a property. Please note that this is an example Grant Deed document that should be used for informational purposes only.
