Title to property that is free from any encumbrances. This type of title is usually not conveyed when you purchase property at a tax deed sale. It is conveyed by a warranty deed and not too many states that sell tax deeds will issue a warranty deed. Most deeds conveyed at tax sales are without warranty and therefore without clear title. To receive clear title to a property for which you have a deed without warranty, you will need to file a legal action known as quiet title action.
