The act of conveying title to real estate via a voluntary transfer. In some states, use of the words “grant,bargain,and sell”in a deed automatically incorporates some or all of the typical deed warranties. (See warranty deed.) In order to avoid the consequences of such statutes, if a grantor wishes to convey title without any warranties,it should use a quitclaim deed or the words “bargain, sell,and quitclaim”rather than “grant,bargain,and sell.”
