§36-4-2. General warranty.
A covenant by a grantor in a deed, "that he will warrant
generally the property hereby conveyed," or a covenant of like
import, or the use of the words "with general warranty" in a
deed, shall have the same effect as if the grantor had covenanted

warrant and defend the said property unto the grantee, his heirs,
personal representatives and assigns, against the claims and
demands of all persons whomsoever.
