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.

Happy Very easy and clear!
DH found this site first online, but then we were referred to the site by banking friend. It does take time to read through and figure out what a person needs, form-wise, to accomplish the goal. Once that was decided, check out and the download was very easy. What a great savings in cost and time.
The lines to print the witnesses for the second signer are a problem. The second witness rverts to the name typed in the first witness line and vice-versa. Had to give up and handprint on these two lines.

Great! Loved getting a sample on how to fill out the form!
Very easy navigation
Easy to access. Easy to fill in with comprehensive instructions and examples to ensure accuracy.
I was pleased with the forms & INSTRUCTIONS, however, after printing to paper, I lost the download from my PC & cannot bring it up again to fill out on PC screen.
I think this is one of the smoothest sites I've used in yrs thanks
Excellent just the way it is. Very happy with the results.
A great deal of help. Made sense and the examples were useful. Saved me some money
This site is very helpful. I just had a few issues with what I typed not showing up very well on the document. But after redoing the boxes several times, I got it to come out perfect.
I have never used any other form sites but this was a smooth transaction. As soon as they get your credit card you have access to your form which you type into and then save and print. The explanation given was clear and concise.
User friendly but when I printed the forms the information I put in could have been spaced a little more
My friend told me to visit this site when I needed to fill out a real estate deed for my property. However I was scared because I did not know how to fill out a legal form on my own. Upon visiting the site I discovered that it was actually something I could accomplish with the materials provided! Thanks so much Deeds.com!
The forms, instructions & example printed without incident... Uncertain how many pages each contained. The option to SAVE the printed format was not apparent immediately......

Just what I needed at a reasonable price. Thank you!
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.
Most everything was excellent. However, for item "11. Source of Title" your guide advised me to contact the local recording office to verify the correct format. I contacted the Marion County recorders office and they would not help me.
Thanks for having these forms available. Examples were very helpful, I think I've completed everything correctly, but we will see when I send them off.
Got the form I needed. Instructions were comprehensive. Satisfied.
SO easy and fast doing my quit claim deed! Showed me where to find official language and property descriptions in my area also! Highly recommend!
had a bit of a question when the grantor was going to remain in play and grantee is just getting added. This would be a good example to add. Otherwise nice form. Thanks.
