With a limited warranty deed the Seller warrants their ownership of the property as to defects in the deed and title caused by their ownership. Versus a general warranty deed by which a Seller warrants that there are no defects even from all previous owners. In today's world a Bargain and Sale deed is utilized where there are no warranties from the seller. The Buyer is left to their own investigation of the Title and buys Title Insurance to warrant that title.

A "Limited Warranty" deed is a less common form of deed that warrants the state of title while the seller owned the property. (A "Limited Warranty" deed’s warranty is limited to the time the grantor owned the property, while a "General Warranty" deed’s warranties also cover all the time the property was owned by prior owners.)
