Transferring a Real Estate Title
Title Transfer Attorney in Lee County
Transferring a real estate title is an essential step when selling your home. Transferring of ownership of the property that you are selling is important in the case that you give the home to your children after you retire. By taking advantage of the legal services we offer at Jackman, Stevens & Ricciardi, P.A., the title transfer can be a smooth process.
How a Transfer Occurs
The transfer of title to real property is almost always done through a document called a deed. On occasion, transfer of title happens by operation of law, such as when a married couple holds title to property together, and one spouse dies. In that situation, a deed is not needed to transfer title to the surviving spouse.
Two other ways that a title to real property can be transferred include:
- Device in a person’s last will and testament
- Certificate of title issued by a court as part of a foreclosure
Most often, it is a deed between buyer and seller which transfers the title of ownership to a piece of real estate. There are different types of deed transfers, including:
- Quit claim deeds
- General warranty deeds
- Special warranty deeds
- Deeds of trust
- Deeds of release
- Beneficiary deeds
