A special warranty deed in South Carolina ensures that the grantee, or the individual receiving the property, has ownership over a real estate asset that doesn’t have any liens or encumbrances during the tenure of the grantor’s period.

However, any claims on the property before the grantor’s ownership period will be the grantee’s responsibility.
