The grant deed authenticates the rights to property owned by tenants in common. The tenants in common both lease or rent a property; both have rights to the property and may move, transfer or alienate the property without affecting the other tenant. Tenants in common may hold unequal rights to a property while joint tenants hold equal shares.
A grant deed establishes the authenticity of your property in terms of title, liens and warrants, for which you will defend against all lawful claims. The grant deed as community property ensures the authenticity of the property owned during a marriage or partnership, half of which will pass to the spouse or partner and the other half to the estate.
If you live in a property governed by a homeowners association, you know that disputes can sometimes arise between residents and the board. The Notice of Dispute to Home Owners Association form is one way for you to provide notice to the association of your grievance, which may help you to reach an agreeable resolution in a timely manner.
In some states your property must be your and your spouse's primary personal residence in order to be considered as a tenancy by the entirety. With such a grant deed, both parties must consent before the tenancy is broken. Tenancy by the entirety can also protect your property against creditors of only one spouse.
