Florida Deeds

If you are going through a real estate property transaction, it is important to identify the type of deed you need because each type of deed meets a specific need. Below are some of the most common types of Florida deeds.

Quit Claim Deeds

A quit claim deed will transfer the interest the grantor  (old owner), had in a property to the grantee {new owner). While a quit claim deed will transfer the grantor’s interest in the property, it does not provide any warranty or guarantee that there are no issues or defects on the title. Only a warranty deed can do that. As a result, quit claim deeds are not typically appropriate when the grantor and grantee are strangers. However, a quit claim deed is quite useful when transferring property to a relative, an LLC, or a trust.

Lady Bird Deeds

Lady bird deeds are special types of deeds outlined in the Florida Statutes. With a lady bird deed, an owner of real property can use and control the premises for their entire life. Upon their death, ownership of the property will automatically transfer to the owner’s beneficiaries without the need for probate. It is important to note that with a lady bird deed, you are not prevented from selling or mortgaging the property during your lifetime even when the remainderman, (person who will inherit the property), does not consent. There are many other benefits to this deed! Ask us!

Warranty Deeds

Warranty deeds transfer ownership of a property from the original owner, (grantor), to a new owner, (grantee). Essentially, a warranty deed ensures that the grantor has the legal right to the title and that there are no other ownership claims on the property. A warranty deed also promises the grantee that the grantor will defend against anyone coming forward in the future claiming an interest in the property.

 

Corrective Deeds

A corrective deed allows corrections to an original deed, although they are not always necessary. For example, if the original deed did not contain a date, or the date was wrong, this does not necessarily call for a corrective deed. On the other hand, if there is a typo in the legal description, this is a much more significant error and could impact the ownership of the property. In this case, a corrective deed is necessary. After a corrective deed is recorded, any invalidities of the original deed are rendered irrelevant and the deed is considered valid once again.

Documentary Stamps

The documentary stamp tax (“doc stamps”) is an excise tax imposed on certain documents executed, delivered, or recorded in Florida, which transfer an interest in Florida real property. There are several exceptions to the required tax but be sure to verify whether or not your deed is taxable. The tax is levied at 70 cents for each $100 of consideration for most recorded documents (i.e., deeds). For purposes of calculating  doc stamps, consideration is defined as: money paid or agreed to be paid, the discharge of an obligation, and the amount of any mortgage, purchase money mortgage lien, or other encumbrance, whether or not the underlying indebtedness is assumed. It is important to note, that if the transfer involves multiple forms of consideration (a mortgage AND there is consideration paid) the amount taxed will be the sum of both.  Doc stamp laws are complex and failure to pay or payment of incorrect tax carries stiff penalties so be sure to let us guide you.

Selecting The Type Of Deed

Our online forms will guide you through a brief series of questions that identify the property to be deeded, the current and new owners, and other specific information required to ensure that we draft a proper and complete deed to meet your needs. In most cases the form will take less than five minutes to complete.

 

To get started, the following information is needed:

  1. A copy of the prior deed if available.
  2. The physical address and county of the property.
  3. Legal names and addresses of the persons or business who will receive ownership in the property.

While it is not required that you have the prior deed, providing a copy will streamline the process of drafting your new deed. At the very least our firm will require the property address and county where the property is located in order to locate the prior deed in public records of the county where the property is located.

 

Our firm offers four types of deeds:

  • Lady Bird Deed 
  • Quit Claim Deed
  • Corrective Deed
  • Warranty Deed
