Florida Quit Claim Deed Requirements
Do you need assistance with a West Palm Beach Quit Claim Deed? Quite often our clients request our Real Estate Attorney services for assistance with both the preparation and the recording of a Quit Claim Deed in Florida for both residential and commercial property.
Although a Florida Quick Claim Deed Form can be purchased at your local Office Depot/Office Max, the transferring of title in real property located in the State of Florida has very strict guidelines and statutes that must be strictly adhered to. Those specific requirements are set forth in our video below and Florida Statute 695.26.
Additionally, many Grantors/Grantees are unaware that the conveyance of Florida real property through a West Palm Beach Quit Claim Deed can also have adverse effects to the parties. For example, if there is a mortgage on the property that is being transferred, a due on sale clause (standard clause in most mortgages) may be triggered and the entire outstanding principal balance on the mortgage may become immediately due and owing. Also, there may be tax consequences that are not expected. Further, if the property being transferred is located within a Florida HOA or Florida COA, a violation of the association documents may occur if the Grantee(s) is not properly screened and approved.
In light of the foregoing, we always recommend consulting with a Florida Real Estate Attorney before handling West Palm Beach Quit Claim Deed transaction on your own.
