Florida Quit Claim Deeds
Do you need assistance with a West Palm Beach Quit Claim Deed? Our clients always request our real estate attorney services in the preparation, signing, and recording of Quit Claim Deeds in order to transfer title to residential and commercial properties.
Although a Florida Quick Claim Deed Form can be purchased at your local Office Depot/Office Max or even bought online, transferring title to Florida property has laws that must be strictly adhered to. Those specific requirements are set forth in our video and in §695.26.
Florida Quit Claim Deed Pitfalls
Additionally, many grantors, grantees, life tenants, and remaindermen are unaware that transferring real property can have adverse effects on the parties.
Specifically, title is not reviewed or warranted and if there is a mortgage encumbering property, a due on sale/ transfer clause may trigger the entire remaining principal balance to become immediately due. Also, there may be unexpected tax consequences and doc stamps assessed. And if the property is located in an association, a transfer without screening, approval, or complying with a right of first refusal, may be violative the association’s governing documents, rendering the transfer void. Sometimes, a transfer may impact homestead status, medicaid eligibility, and the title policy may be in jeopardy.
