Orlando Corrective Deeds

Drafting legal documents is sometimes a cumbersome thing, and mistakes are sometimes made. When an error occurs between two parties within a deed agreement, corrections must be made to remedy the mistake and have the deed deemed valid once again. This is where an Orlando corrective deed lawyer is helpful for all parties involved.

What is an Orlando Corrective Deed?

The purpose of an Orlando corrective deed is fairly self-explanatory. These deeds serve to correct and nullify mistakes made between a grantor and a grantee that have entered into a deed agreement. The grantor is the person that currently owns the property, the grantee is the new owner, and the deed transfers the ownership rights.

Mistakes made within deed agreements can vary from minor issues such as a misspelled name, or major mistakes, such as an incorrect legal description of the property. Sometimes, these mistakes must be corrected, particularly if both parties agree to it. In other cases, such as when there is a small mistake with the date, the Florida Bar Association has determined an Orlando corrective deed is not necessary.

What is the Most Common Error Made on Orlando Deeds?

The most common mistake made on Orlando deeds that render them invalid is an incorrect description of the property being transferred. For example, if the acreage of the property is not calculated properly, a corrective deed would be necessary once that error was discovered.

What Can an Orlando Corrective Deed Not Cover?

Although corrective deeds are useful when correcting many issues, they are not always sufficient. If at any point, the two parties named on the deed wish to make changes to any part of the existing agreement, general speaking a new agreement should be drafted. Orlando corrective deeds only change one specific element of a deed, and they do not entirely change the agreement.

Scrivener’s Affidavit

Orlando deeds are legal documents that transfer real estate property from one owner to another. However, an error contained within a deed can mean the difference between one party owning the property, or not having any legal rights to it at all. When a deed containing mistakes has been made part of public record, a scrivener’s affidavit can be used to fix minor errors.

A corrective deed will resolve any mistakes that affect the ownership of the property. A scrivener’s affidavit, on the other hand, is sufficient to resolve other mistakes made on the deed, such as a simple typographical error or other mistake that does not change the nature or intention of the deed. These affidavits are sworn statements that outline the initial error in the deed, and can be used to clarify the appropriate information,

A Warranty Deed conveys property from the old owner (Grantor) to the new owner (Grantee) together with a guarantee that the Grantor has legal right, title, and interest in the property being conveyed and is authorized to do so. The warranty being given by the Grantor assures the Grantee that no one else has a valid ownership claim in the property. Essentially, it is the Grantor promising the Grantee that the Grantor is the only rightful owner of the property, and as such, the Grantor has the full authority to convey the property. This type of deed further provides a promise from the Grantor to the Grantee that the Grantor will defend against anyone who might come forward at any time in the future and try to make a claim that they had an interest in the property at the time of the conveyance to the Grantee.

This type of deed is generally used when consideration is being paid for the sale of the property between two unrelated parties.

Quit claim Deed

A Quit Claim Deed conveys any interest that the old owner (Grantor) may have in the property to the new owner (Grantee). Although this type of deed does successfully convey any interest the Grantor may have, it does not provide a warranty, or guarantee, to the Grantee that the Grantor had the legal right, title, and interest in the property to convey it. That is not necessarily to say that the Grantor does not have the legal right, title, and interest in the property being conveyed. It just relieves the Grantor from binding himself to a promise made to the Grantee regarding the property interest being conveyed.

This type of deed is generally used for the conveyance of property between related parties or when no consideration is being paid, such as for a gift or estate planning purposes. This type of deed is also commonly used for property transfers made in connection with a divorce.

A Lady Bird Deed is a unique form of deed created by statute in the State of Florida, and a powerful tool to avoid probate. With the Florida lady bird deed, you give yourself a life estate interest in your property and appoint remaindermen to become owners immediately upon your death. A life estate is a right to live in the property until your death. Remaindermen are like beneficiaries of your estate, who have a future ownership interest. What makes Florida lady bird deeds so valuable is that you retain full interest in the real property. As the life tenant you reserve for yourself the right to sell, encumber, and otherwise do as you please with the real estate during your lifetime, and without and knowledge or consent of the remaindermen. You may also change the remaindermen at any point in time or even revert the whole interest back to yourself.

A Corrective Deed can be executed and recorded to fix any errors in the original deed, including those that are otherwise fatal to the validity of the prior deed, such as an improper legal description. If the original deed contains significant errors, a new deed must be executed. A corrective deed is required when a grantor transfers property he or she once owned but does not any longer, errors that exceed simple typos in significance exist in the deed, or the deed lacks sufficient witness(es) or a notary acknowledgment. Invalid deeds can be rendered valid again if a Corrective Deed is made a matter of public record. Doing so clarifies the intent of the original deed.
