2017 Georgia (GAR) Contract Changes

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)
