Document Formatting Requirements
The recording act in Florida is a notice statute. A later buyer who pays fair value for the property and does not have notice of any other earlier conflicting interests, wins and will have first priority over later recordings.

Easements, warranty deeds, quit claim deeds, and other instruments pertaining to real property located in Osceola County can be recorded with the Clerk of the Circuit Court.

• Legible print or typing is required to ensure accurate reproduction. Black ink with a font size of at least 12 point should be used. Printing should be single-sided only.

• Paper size should be at least 8.5x11 inches but not larger than 8.5x14 inches. White paper of standard copy weight is required.

• Deeds require two witnesses. Names should be printed or typed beneath signatures.

• The grantor’s signature must be notarized and the name and address of each grantor must be printed below each signature. The notary’s name should be printed
or typed beneath the notary’s signature.

• On the first page of the instrument, provide a return name and address so that the document can be returned to the proper party after recording.

• The preparer’s name and address should be given on the first page.

• A complete legal description of the property is required.

• The grantee’s name and mailing address should be provided on the deed.

• In the top right corner of the first page, include a 3x3 blank area. This is used by the clerk of the court.

• On subsequent pages, provide a 1x3 inch blank space in the top right corner. Other margins should be at least 1 inch.

• The form for a warranty deed of conveyance to land should include a blank space for the property appraiser’s parcel identification number describing the property. The number, if available, should be entered on the deed before it is presented for recording.

When the consideration paid or exchanged for the real property is other than money, the consideration is equal to the fair market value of the real property.

A deed transferring an interest in Florida real property between husband and wife, including when a spouse’s name is added to a deed, is subject to the documentary stamp tax. In most cases, the amount of tax is based on half of the amount of the unpaid balance of any mortgages. Documentary stamp taxes are not due if the marital home is transferred within a year of a divorce and if the transfer occurred on or after July 1, 1997.
