How To Quit Claim A Property In Florida
If you have property that you no longer want or use, you may want to consider filing a "quit claim deed." A quit claim deed is a legal document that allows you to relinquish ownership of a property without having to go through the hassle of going through court.
To file a quit claim deed in Florida, you will need to meet several requirements. First, you will need to have the legal title to the property. Then, you will need to file an application with the appropriate county recorder's office. Finally, you will need to provide certain documentation (usually a deed or mortgage) that proves your ownership of the property.
Once you have filed all of the necessary paperwork, you will be able to relinquish ownership of the property to whomever you choose. The quit claim deed is not a permanent document – it only lasts for a set period of time (usually 10 years). If you ever decide that you want to reclaim ownership of the property, you can file a new quit claim deed with the county recorder's office.
The easiest way to prepare a quit claim deed in Florida is with help from an experienced attorney. If you cannot find an attorney who is willing to help you prepare the document, you can find resources online or through your local courthouse.
