Limited Warranty Deed Instead of General

This is a major benefit for Sellers.  The old language required the Seller to convey title via General Warranty Deed.  This meant the Seller was warranting the title against all defects, including those that may have occurred before the Seller owned the property. 

Warranty: Seller warrants that at the time of closing Seller will convey good and marketable title to said Property by limited warranty deed…..

The 2017 GAR forms provide for the Seller to convey titles via a Limited Warranty Deed.  This limits the Sellers warranty to just the time that the Seller has owned the property.  (Your agent or Broker cannot mess this up)

Seller’s Responsibility to Disclose

A big change this year is associated with the Sellers responsibility for disclosing latent or hidden defects, even when the property is being sold “AS IS”. 

Even if the Property is sold “as-is” Seller is required under Georgia law to disclose to the Buyer latent or hidden defects in the Property which Seller is aware and which could not have been discovered by the Buyer upon a reasonable inspection of the property.

 An oversight by the Seller could result in damages to the Buyer. (Don’t let your agent or Broker overlook this)

Each year our Georgia Association of Realtors (GAR) works very hard to update the GAR Forms that most major Brokerage firms use.  The annual release of new or updated forms always has an impact on the Brokers’ clients, whether Buyers or Sellers.  Below you will find some of the more significant changes and the impact that they may have.

Community Association Disclosure (CAD or HOA Exhibit)

In years past many agents have overlooked this as an essential element of the contract, leaving it out, or in many cases allowing for the Seller client to fill it out without attention to detail.  In the past the consequences were nominal and rarely caused a problem.

However the changes in the (2017 CAD or HOA Exhibit) now carry a potentially large penalty.

My broker, Van, pushes me to think – makes my brain hurt sometimes! He asked me a thought-provoking question last week, “Pam, looking over your first full year in real estate – what would you say is your ‘take away’?” I’ve learned so much …. but I was thinking of the details, not the Big Picture. What was the Big Take Away? What did I discover about the business and how I relate to it?

Steve Forbes said, “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” What does that have to do with real estate? Lots!

When I took my first real estate course, I remember the instructor telling the class, “This class is to teach you how to pass
