What is the Alabama Gift Deed

Gift deeds convey title to real property from one party to another with no exchange of consideration, monetary or otherwise. Often used to transfer property between family members or to gift property as a charitable act or donation, these conveyances occur during the grantor's lifetime. It is important that a gift deed contain language that explicitly states that no consideration is expected or required. Ambiguous language, or references to any type of consideration, can make the gift deed contestable in court.

A lawful gift deed includes the grantor's full name and marital status, as well as the grantee's full name, marital status, vesting, and mailing address. Vesting describes how the grantee holds title to the property. Generally, real property is owned in either sole ownership or in co-ownership. For Alabama residential property, the primary methods for holding title in co-ownership are joint tenancy and tenancy in common. The primary characteristic of joint tenancy is the right of survivorship. In Alabama, the right of survivorship is not presumed and must be specified in the form of the deed (Ala. Code 1975, 35-4-7).

As with any conveyance of realty, a gift deed requires a complete legal description of the parcel. In Alabama, if the legal description references a plat, the plat should be attached to the deed, or the deed should describe the plat book and office in which it can be found (Ala. Code 1975, 35-4-74). Recite the source of title to establish a clear chain of title, and detail any restrictions associated with the property. The document must be signed and acknowledged by the grantor in the presence of two credible witnesses, one of which can be the notary (Ala. Code 1975, 35-4-65). Record the completed deed, along with any additional materials, in the probate office of the county where the property is located. Contact the same office to verify accepted forms of payment.

Consult an attorney licensed in the State of Alabama with questions regarding transfers of real property in the state.

I used deeds.com to record a deed because the recording office closed due to Covid 19.
It was easy to sign up and upload the documents I needed recorded and within 24 hours possibly even less, the deeds were recorded. I am very happy with the service and the $15 fee was affordable and worth every penny to get it done so quickly.

Process is well laid out, clear and concise. Check out is easy.
Recommendations:

* Assign names to the downloadable files that are meaningful, such as: WARRANTY DEED instead of the useless and cryptic 1420490866F11417.pdf.

* Provide a ONE BUTTON DOWNLOAD for all forms ordered. It's aggravating to have to click on each of the 20 documents and download them individually.

The form itself was very good and easy to use. The only problem I had was the Sample they provided. Using a different name in every spot doesnt help determine what goes where. Using "Theodore Rockafeller" as Lien Claimant in one spot and Jebediah Finklestein in another then Harvey Johnson in the last spot is confusing if you really need a helpful sample.

Reply from Staff

Thank you for your feedback James. We will have staff review the completed example to see if we can make it more helpful. Have a great day!

Seems easy enough, may have downloaded forms I don't need, however I'm hoping that these are the only I'll need. Did a lot of research and Deeds.com looks to be the best for anything you need. I am very happy at finally being able to find the forms I was looking for so easily. Thank you
