Deed Writing and Preparation Services in Florida

There are some basic types of deeds that you might need to have drawn up if you have property or assets that you need legal protection for. These are the most common services that the team at Lopez Law is asked to perform for those in Florida who have property or assets that require deeds to be drawn up. The experienced and skilled lawyers at Lopez Law will work with you to find out what kind of legal protection you need to put in place for your unique situation and help you to draft the right deed and other accompanying documentation for your specific situation.

These kinds of deeds often go hand in hand with estate planning, and we can also offer support for these essential legal services as well. You should never be forced to leave your loved ones with an estate that will have to pass through probate or with the uncertainty that accompanies a lack of legal documentation to protect their rights to your assets upon your death. Making sure that the right deeds and other legal documents are in place to protect your real property is critical for so many reasons. We can help you to craft all of the right deeds and other legal documents that are needed to ensure that your loved ones will not struggle with financial security or other problems when you pass away.

If you are named in a deed and are not sure what this will mean for you, we can also help advise you about what this document will mean for you. You might need to be prepared for some changes to your own situation related to the language of the deed, and you will want to be able to speak with the person who is creating this document if you are not sure that you can undertake the responsibilities laid out in it. There are many reasons that deed documents can be a burden on people who were not aware that they would be named in this capacity. We can help you to figure out what a deed that has been prepared with you as the recipient will mean.

·         Quit Claim Deed

Quit claims are legal documents that transfer all of the ownership of a real property from one person to another. You cannot transfer the full ownership if you do not possess the full ownership, but you can transfer your part to another person if you wish. There are no warranties of the title associated with this transfer either.

These are documents that are used when parties know one another and are in agreement about the action that is going to be taken. This might be an adult child that wants to take over ownership of a real property with your permission or a family member that is transferring a property into your care. These are some of the most basic and commonly drafted deeds in the state of Florida, and we have years of experience in writing them.

 

·         Personal Representative’s Deed

This deed is used to make sure that an estate does not go through probate. The court assigns a personal representative who is the individual who is tasked with addressing outstanding issues related to the estate. This person is also required to distribute the remaining assets according to the guidance of the will or other legal documentation that has been put in place before someone’s death. This deed is also used to transfer title from the deceased owner to the personal representative with the intention of settling the estate.

·         General Warranty Deed

This deed is written up to transfer the ownership of real estate assets with the full warranty of the title included. The current owner promises that they have a good and valid title to the property and that it is free of encumbrances when this transfer is made. This is most commonly used for full ownership of a property that needs to be passed to someone else or is being handed over due to a sale. While this is still most commonly used when parties know one another, it is the easiest way to transfer full ownership of a property with the guarantee that the property is free and clear of any legal entanglements.

·         Special Warranty Deed

When you use a special warranty deed for a transfer of ownership, it promises that the grantor will turn over the property in the condition that it was received in. There will be no damage or defect to the property during the time that the grantor owned it. This does not make a promise about what occurred on the property before the grantor received ownership of it, and it does not include improvements in the stated value of the transfer either.

·         Life Estate Deed

When you need to make sure that you or someone else retains an interest in a real property asset for life, you need to use this kind of deed. A life estate deed will allow a property to pass after death to the named remaindermen. This also makes sure that the property does not go through probate, which can save time and which also makes sure that the right party ends up with the real property without having to deal with disputes in court. The remainderman or remaindermen inherit the property upon the death of the grantor when this kind of deed is in place.

This can be one of the most critical kinds of deeds to draft since the probate process can be time-consuming and can also open up property assets to being given to someone other than the person that you intended to take possession of them. All estate planning seeks to avoid the probate process, and when you need to be sure that specific property items are handed off to specific people, this is the right way to ensure that this action will take place. This is the kind of deed that you might put in place for a family home or a business location and property that needs to remain with your family for their security and financial well-being after you are gone.

  •         Enhanced Life Estate Deed

Also known as a Lady Bird Deed, this kind of deed is meant to make sure that the grantor will keep control of a property during their lifetime. This also protected against mortgage of the property without approval of the remainderman or remaindermen. The property will then transfer immediately to the state recipient upon the death of the grantor. This is a great option if the person that is going to receive ownership of the property upon your death already lives on the property and has an interest in its management and care.

While the person that is named in your Lady Bird Deed cannot sell the property while you are still alive, they can make changes to it, improve it, and use it as they wish. This arrangement is often used when an elderly person has a live-in caregiver who is also family and who needs to be in charge of the daily needs related to the property and its care. You might also want to put this agreement in place for a spouse or someone else who would not otherwise legally be entitled to ownership of the property if probate was enforced upon your death.

While unique, this kind of deed can be a really great benefit to both parties, and it can greatly improve the chances that you will protect your property from ending up in the wrong hands upon your death. There are various reasons why this deed might not be useful in your situation, but the team at Lopez Law can write up this important document with ease if it does apply to your unique situation.

Commercial Property Deeds

These deeds are more complex to write and can be more specific to the kind of business or the kind of commercial function that the property is used for. You will want to be sure to seek expert legal support for these deeds when they need to be drafted. Reaching out to us at Lopez Law is the right first step when you believe that you need to have a commercial deed drawn up. We can work with you to figure out which deed style is right for your needs, and we are also happy to help verify that estate planning and other considerations are in place for this property or asset.

When your family depends on a business or a commercial location for their livelihood, you need to be sure that you have taken care of the deeding process to ensure that they will be able to access the benefits and proceeds when you are gone. There are other reasons that you might need to create a commercial deed as well related to sales or partial shareholder transitions and more. You can trust us to have years of experience with this kind of deed writing process and to take care of your commercial deed drafting with skill and attention to detail.

What Our Clients Say

A Godsend

Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

Amazing Amazing Amazing!”

I called multiple attorneys to resolve my issue and none had much experience as much as this form. Anthony was amazing and made sure that as his client I was satisfied and understanding with his work. Very helpful and very patient and I was able to communicate with ease. I will definitely recommend this firm if you have a landlord/tenant issue or just an amazing attorney who listens to his clients needs.

Ashley Rondon

"Awesome!"

Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
