Deeds

Not all circumstances require formal escrow and closing services when conveying real estate. However, even if you are conveying property in one of those unique circumstances, it is still imperative that you retain the assistance of a real estate attorney. Failure to comply with the legal nuances associated with the preparation and execution of a conveyance instrument could result in unnecessary documentary stamp taxes, inability to maintain homestead tax exemptions, costly title errors, or the invalidity and unenforceability of the deed itself.
Depending on your circumstances, you may have several types of deeds to choose from, including, but not limited to, the following:

  1. Quit Claim Deed
  2. Enhanced Life Estate Deed (also known as the “Lady Bird Deed”)
  3. Warranty Deed
  4. Special Warranty Deed
  5. Deeds into a Trust
  6. Trustee’s Deed

Our experienced real estate attorney will work with you to determine what kind of deed best fits your unique circumstances to minimize expense and ensure the conveyance is completed properly.

Easements

Our real estate attorney has experience preparing and negotiating a wide variety of easements, including but not limited to:

  1. Ingress and egress easements
  2. Easements appurtenant
  3. Easements in gross
  4. Access easements
  5. Utility easements

Our attorney works closely with the surveyor to ensure the easement instrument is prepared, executed and recorded properly.

FAQs

Can I use a form quit claim deed found online?

Maybe, but probably not. The form documents found online may not be Florida specific and may not come with instructions on how to properly execute them. If your deed does not include requisite information or is not executed properly, it may be deemed invalid.

What is an easement?

An easement is a legal right to use someone else’s property for a specific purpose.

Can I get title insurance if the conveyance document is a quit claim deed?

Yes, our office can assist with issuing title insurance even if a quit claim deed was used as the original conveyance instrument.
