Orlando Deeds

Orlando deeds allow for the rightful legal ownership rights of one party to be transferred to another person. There are many different types of deeds and it is important to choose the right one so problems do not arise in the future. Our attorneys can determine the property that requires a deed, the parties involved, and ensure the draft you need is executed and recorded properly, and that it meets your needs. The process of recording a deed is fairly quick, and it is important to ensure you move forward with the appropriate protections. Our Orlando deeds lawyers can guide you through the process.

Orlando Corrective Deeds

Corrective deeds do just what their name implies – they correct any errors an original deed contains. Sometimes these mistakes are fatal to the validity of a deed and can render them invalid. A mistake made in the legal description of a property is just one type of error that could mean a deed is no longer valid. If an error is not significant and does not change the legal nature of the original deed, a corrective deed may not be necessary. When a corrective deed is recorded as part of the public record, it can deem an invalid deed valid again and can clarify the intent of the original deed.

Lady Bird Deeds

A lady bird deed allows the legal owner of a property, known as the grantor, to retain control and use of the property during their lifetime. With a lady bird provision, the legal right of ownership to that property will then automatically transfer to the heir, also known as the grantee, upon the grantor’s death. A lady bird deed can help heirs avoid the lengthy and costly probate process, which is usually required to transfer property to heirs and beneficiaries.

Quit Claim Deeds

A quit claim deed also transfers the ownership of a property from one person to another. However, these deeds do not provide any guarantee regarding the legal title, right, or interest of the property. This does not mean the grantor does not have the legal right to the property. It only means that if there is a third party claim against the property in the future, the grantor cannot be held liable. Quit claim deeds are generally only appropriate when the parties involved in the transaction are related.

Warranty Deeds

Warranty deeds serve the same purpose as quit claim deeds. They allow the existing owner of a property to transfer the legal right to the property to another person. However, the difference is that a warranty deed provides a guarantee to the grantee that there are no defects with the title. If it is later found that the title was defective, the grantor is then liable for paying any damages associated with the losses sustained as a result of the defect.

WARRANTY DEED

A Warranty Deed conveys property from the old owner (Grantor) to the new owner (Grantee) together with a guarantee that the Grantor has legal right, title, and interest in the property being conveyed and is authorized to do so. The warranty being given by the Grantor assures the Grantee that no one else has a valid ownership claim in the property. Essentially, it is the Grantor promising the Grantee that the Grantor is the only rightful owner of the property, and as such, the Grantor has the full authority to convey the property. This type of deed further provides a promise from the Grantor to the Grantee that the Grantor will defend against anyone who might come forward at any time in the future and try to make a claim that they had an interest in the property at the time of the conveyance to the Grantee.

This type of deed is generally used when consideration is being paid for the sale of the property between two unrelated parties.

Quit claim Deed

A Quit Claim Deed conveys any interest that the old owner (Grantor) may have in the property to the new owner (Grantee). Although this type of deed does successfully convey any interest the Grantor may have, it does not provide a warranty, or guarantee, to the Grantee that the Grantor had the legal right, title, and interest in the property to convey it. That is not necessarily to say that the Grantor does not have the legal right, title, and interest in the property being conveyed. It just relieves the Grantor from binding himself to a promise made to the Grantee regarding the property interest being conveyed.

This type of deed is generally used for the conveyance of property between related parties or when no consideration is being paid, such as for a gift or estate planning purposes. This type of deed is also commonly used for property transfers made in connection with a divorce.

LADY BIRD Deed

A Lady Bird Deed is a unique form of deed created by statute in the State of Florida, and a powerful tool to avoid probate. With the Florida lady bird deed, you give yourself a life estate interest in your property and appoint remaindermen to become owners immediately upon your death. A life estate is a right to live in the property until your death. Remaindermen are like beneficiaries of your estate, who have a future ownership interest. What makes Florida lady bird deeds so valuable is that you retain full interest in the real property. As the life tenant you reserve for yourself the right to sell, encumber, and otherwise do as you please with the real estate during your lifetime, and without and knowledge or consent of the remaindermen. You may also change the remaindermen at any point in time or even revert the whole interest back to yourself.

CORRECTIVE Deed

A Corrective Deed can be executed and recorded to fix any errors in the original deed, including those that are otherwise fatal to the validity of the prior deed, such as an improper legal description. If the original deed contains significant errors, a new deed must be executed. A corrective deed is required when a grantor transfers property he or she once owned but does not any longer, errors that exceed simple typos in significance exist in the deed, or the deed lacks sufficient witness(es) or a notary acknowledgment. Invalid deeds can be rendered valid again if a Corrective Deed is made a matter of public record. Doing so clarifies the intent of the original deed.
