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:
- Quit Claim Deed
- Enhanced Life Estate Deed (also known as the “Lady Bird Deed”)
- Warranty Deed
- Special Warranty Deed
- Deeds into a Trust
- 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.
