I wish every state offered such an easy and economical download of these forms. You were reasonable in price, I received one of every form you offered along with instructions, and it made my day so easy. Why pay a lawyer a fortune for these simple (almost) everyday forms when you can do it all for less than $20. Thank you for being reasonable, well organized, and available for common use! Cherif T.

Downloaded and used the Ladybird Warranty Deed for a county in Florida with no issues. Cost for the download and subsequent recording fee of the deed totaled less than $40. No reason to pay hundreds. I assume the subsequent transfer upon death will go smoothly, but I of course, will never know. The "example" of a completed form was very beneficial. Also, get a copy of the current deed and make sure legal description of real estate is exactly the same on the new deed.
