Don’t take my word for gospel, but I believe that you want to get a Warranty Deed when taking the house Sub 2. Then when you sell the house you want to issue a Quit Claim Deed. This is my understanding, but if
I am wrong I am sure someone more knowledgeable will educate us both.
Warranty or Quit Claim Deed with Sub 2? - Posted by Aaron330i (Austin)

In the Austin REI Club meeting last night, the presenter led us through a recent Subject To that he did. Interestingly enough, the result of his method is obtaining a Warranty Deed with a title policy instead of getting a Quit Claim Deed.
Which do you prefer to get?

Most title companies in Texas do not like quit claim deeds. They feel they do no properly convey title. More of “if I have any interest you can have it.” Instead they use a No Warranty Deed or Special Warranty Deed. It conveys title but does not give a warranty other than from the seller to the buyer. A full blown warranty deed says that clear title is give and you willever defend that title. Or in other words-they can sue you if title is not clean. I known of no title company that will insure title on a subject to. He may be getting a title policy that excepts the DOS of the existing lender. You would be paying a lot for little protection with such a policy. The idea is usually to get into a subject to with little if any money. You do an abstract to be sure you can convey title to your buyer. If you have to put out a lot of money you should be using a different approach.
