What is the easiest way to transfer title to real estate in Florida and are there any implications?
In Florida, a deed is your title to the property and there are different forms of deeds. It could be a warranty deed, which is used for a regular arm’s length transaction, or a quitclaim deed. A quitclaim deed is an easy document that gets prepared by a real estate attorney and in that document, you can add or remove people from title, in an easy format. It gets filed electronically and you can have it recorded the same day that it’s prepared. It does require two witnesses and a notary, so it’s always best to consult with a real estate attorney to prepare that quitclaim deed for you.
