The Ohio general warranty deed is a legally binding document, when properly filled out and executed, transferring real estate interests from one person to another. A warranty deed includes a guarantee by the seller (or grantor), that he or she has full legal authority to transfer his or her interests and that there are no defects or encumbrances to the title to the property. This means that there is no one else who can claim an interest in the property other than what has been disclosed.
