Florida Quit Claim Deed Drafting
In order to transfer an interest in real property, you will need to draft a deed for that transfer. There are several forms for deeds including Warranty Deeds and Quit Claim Deeds. Warranty Deeds warrant that the transferor has good title to the property and will defend the same should a dispute arise. A quit claim deed on the other hand simply transfer any interest, if any, that the transferor has in the property to the new party. No warranty is made as to the status of title of the property or restrictions that the transferor may have as to the use and ownership of the property. It is important to remember that a Florida Quit Claim deed is a permanent and unconditional transfer that cannot be undone without the drafting and recording of another deed. Great caution should be taken in the drafting of a Quit Claim Deed as you will be divesting yourself of all ownership in the property. Once recorded, the new owner may take out a loan on the property, rent the property, offer it for sale, or transfer it to someone else.
Neither the Court nor the Recording office for the County can help you fill out and complete a deed. While you can buy a form from an office supply store, that is no substitute for the legal advice of a lawyer. If you are not familiar with the process of drafting a Florida Quit Claim Deed, we would suggest that you should not begin to experiment at this time. Making a mistake in drafting a quit claim deed could be very costly, cause title problems, prevent the future transfer of the property and force you to spend thousands of dollars to fix in the future.
Florida Quit Claim Deed Recording
In order to make the transfer in the property official, the Florida Quit Claim deed must be recorded in the Public Records of the County where the property is located. Recording the deed places the entire world on notice of who the new owner is for the property. Failure to record the Florida Quit Claim Deed could result in the forfeiture of your property rights and interests in the real property. The recording of the Florida Quit Claim Deed requires that certain costs and fees be paid. Each county has their own recording costs. In addition, each County requires that document stamps or taxes be paid on the property based upon the outstanding mortgage owed on the property. Failure to pay all fees and stamps at the time of recording will result in the return of your Florida Quit Claim deed to you.
