** Wiley and Gemma are
neighbors. Wiley’s lot is extremely
large, and his present and future use of it will not involve the entire area. Gemma wants to build a single-car garage and
driveway along the present lot boundary. Because of ordinances requiring buildings to
be set back ﬁfteen feet from an adjoining property line, and because of the
placement of her existing structures, Gemma cannot build the garage. Gemma contracts to purchase ten feet of
Wiley’s property along their boundary line for $3,000. Wiley is willing to sell but will give Gemma
only a quitclaim deed, whereas Gemma wants a warranty deed. Discuss the differences between these deeds as
they would affect the rights of the parties if the title to this ten feet of
land later proved to be defective.
