The Colorado special warranty deed is used to convey real estate in Colorado from a grantor to a grantee or seller to a buyer with a limited warranty as to title. A special warranty only warrants that the seller did not grant any interest in the property to another during the time that they held the property, but does not guarantee that there are no other claims from before the grantor acquired the property. In all cases of land transfer it is important that the buyer has a clear idea as to what is recorded in the land records for the property to make sure there are no others who can claim an interest in the property. That is why it is important to complete a land records search for the property.
