How does the real estate deed need to be formatted? Well, the first thing you have to do is, show who the grantor is, or the person who owns the property, whose conveying it to someone else. That person that they’re conveying it to is called a grantee. We need to have their name in the deed and we also need their address. Then you next need to show that it’s what the consideration is, whether it be $10 or it’s a gift or the dollar amount that the, this transfer is being made for, then you need to put in a good legal description, just not what the property appraises says it is or what the street address is. You need the legal description in it. Then, you need to have magic words in, in the deeds of conveyance, such as they grant convey transfer. So quick claim, all of those indicate that your transfer, the title, and then you have the legal description. Then the deed must be signed the presence of two different witnesses. And then you have to have an acknowledgement. That’s not a, a sworn statement, but an acknowledgement by the person doing the conveyance, the deed needs to be signed the presence of these two witnesses. So that’s the format for a deed in Florida. If anyone’s viewing this outside the state of Florida, I am not telling you what’s required in those states, but that’s pretty much the format that you need for a deed. I know the, the clerk of the court may require the grant tour to put their address in the property. We also put down the marital status of the grant tour and that if it’s his home, he needs to be single, or if not, he needs to have his spouse join in the deed to convey property and show that their husband and wife, or if he’s single or just what his status is. So if you have any questions about, the deeds, uh, give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
