Are there any recurring fees involved?

No. Nothing to cancel, no memberships, no recurring fees.

Trustees use this form for a trustee to transfer real estate out of a Florida living trust or land trust, or in a foreclosure situation. It meets the same content requirements as a standard warranty or quitclaim deed, but also includes relevant details about the trust, and any other information needed for the transfer.

This type of conveyance is named for the person using the form -- the trustee -- who stands in for the beneficiary of the trust and holds title to the property. Trustees act according to the terms of the trust, and under the direction of the trustor, also called the settlor, grantor, or donor (the person or entity who transferred the assets into the trust). In some situations, the trustor may also serve as the trustee. Note that when signing trustee's deeds, the trustee must identify him/herself as trustee and include the full name of the trust.

After the trustee executes the form, record it in the real property records of the county where the land is situated to provide public notice of the change in ownership.

(Florida Trustees Deed Package includes form, guidelines, and completed example)

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

You're service saved the day! I had gone to several lawyers and title companies who all said, at a Minimum, preparing a deed costs $1000...
Through your service and some work reading about the requirements as well as calling my county clerks office, I was able to complete the deed and it read accepted and recorded today!
Thanks so much.
