Florida statutory requirements for quit claim deed form content:
F. S. 689.01 presents the basic rules for conveying real property in Florida. Although quitclaim deeds are not specifically defined in the Florida Statutes, the correct language, modifications, and content work together to create an instrument that legally transfer ownership of land.
All quitclaim deeds must be in writing and be signed by the grantor in the presence of two witnesses. In addition to these details, F. S. 689.02 presents the form for a warranty deed. It includes requirements for the date of conveyance; the names, addresses, and counties of both parties (grantor and grantee); the amount of consideration (usually money); and a complete legal description of the property. The statutory form also requests the property appraiser's parcel ID, which should be included if possible, and the grantee's social security number, which may be omitted on documents submitted for recordation and entry into the public record. This basic form also includes warranty covenants, however, which must be deleted and/or changed where appropriate because quit claim deeds do not contain any warranty protection for the grantee.
If the real estate described in the quitclaim deed is a homestead, F. S. 689.111 explains that if the grantor is married, both spouses must sign the conveyance whether both have ownership of the property or not.
F. S. 695.26 provides the requirements for recording instruments affecting real property:
* Each signature must have the signor's name typed or printed beneath the signature, and each signor's complete mailing address must be in the body of the quit claim deed. In most cases, the addresses are included with the grantor/grantee information.
* Quit claim deeds must contain the name and mailing address of the individual who prepared the document.
* Each witness's signature must have the signor's name typed or printed beneath the signature.
* The quit claim deed must be acknowledged by a notary public or other official authorized to take acknowledgements and administer oaths.
* Specific format: 3" x 3" space at the top right of the first page, 1" around the sides and bottom, 1" x 3" at the top right of all other pages with 1" around the sides and bottom.
Florida follows a "notice" recording statute. F. S. 695.01 asserts that conveyances of real property, including quit claim deeds, must be formally recorded according to law, thereby providing notice to the public of a change in ownership of the parcel of land. This means that if the grantor conveys the same property to another bona fide purchaser (buyer of the land for value, usually money), and the earlier deed is not recorded, the later grantee will generally retain ownership.
Recording quit claim deeds or other instruments that formalize a change in ownership of property preserves the chain of title (sequence of owners), which simplifies future conveyances. F. S. 695.11 states that instruments submitted for recording to the clerk of circuit court's office are considered to be recorded at the time they are filed. Each document receives a unique, sequential, official register number to identify the order of submission; lower numbers have priority over higher numbers in the same series.
F. S. 695.01 goes on to explain that grantees by quit claim are considered "bona fide purchasers without notice within the meaning of the recording acts." This is because quit claim deeds contain no warranties of title. Regardless, the best way to protect the interests of all parties is to record the deed as soon as possible after its execution.

My existing Quit Claim Deed including Notary Stamp all fits on a one page legal page - not multiple pages like your documents appear to print. I have to pay more money when submitting multiple pages on quit claim deeds.
I needed a quit claim deed for my county and the process of obtaining one was simple. Thank you.
Printed forms should exclude deed.com footer. Having it print a reference to your site along the footer of each page is (in my opinion) inappropriate for a recorded document.
Doing a quit claim deed with proper forms made the process of yielding my final claim to property I loved as simple as pie. Thanks. I will be registering the deed in our county court house on Thursday December 22nd. H A Dale

Very efficient. I liked.
It was easy to use your site. I haven't taken the forms to be notarized yet, so don't know for sure that they'll pass inspection. Hope so!
Extremely easy and everything I needed!!!! The attorney was going to charge me 15 times more and do the same thing!!! Thank you!
Fast easy and reasonable. Thank you!
Seemed to be accepted without problem.
A little bit of work going back and forth between the form, instructions, and example to get the formatting correct but the end result was just what I needed. No issues when I had it recorded.
Very easy to use
Relatively easy to complete. I did have to call the Clerk of Courts to get the correct fees and the mailing address. The spaces for signatures were somewhat vague....4 spaces for signatures.... ? grantors only or grantees also.

The site delivered just what it promised - I needed a specific deed formatted for a specific county/state, and they delivered it at a great price. One note for improvement - it is not intuitively obvious that I could go back and re-download if necessary and this caused me stress, but a follow up email alleviated this. Great service!
I found the deeds site to be easy to navigate, to download files easily. Had all the information required to fill out forms.
Hoping I ordered the correct form. I needed to ADD a name to a deed will know on Monday. Hope so.... thanks for your interest.
I got the downloadable form immediately
I am very pleased with your forms. It was very user friendly. And I got them in an instant. Very happy with my purchase.
