A statutory warranty deed is a type of property conveyance and is generally thought of as a condensed warranty deed. The deed is permitted by a statute which will include the standard title agreements that are typically found in a warranty deed. It is important to note that a statutory warranty deed only concerns the title only and has nothing to do with the quality or improvements that have been made to the property.
