How We Help
Deed Transfer Services
If you are currently looking to either buy or sell a home, the deed will be one of the most critical documents in the process. Deed transfer services are essential when you are transferring ownership to a seller. Proper attorneys will safeguard the property and handle any tax-related issues that occur.
The deed is the legal piece of paper used to transfer property ownership from one owner to the next—called a deed transfer or a bill of sale. It will help you settle any property disputes and determine who owns a property. A deed needs proper legal representation for execution and use in a professional capacity. Let the experts at Armour Title help make this process easier and more streamlined for your clients.
Elements Of A Deed
An essential deed will have a few elements: a detailed description of the property, information about the former owners, new details on the buyers, and signatures from both parties. The former owners or sellers are the grantors, while the buyer is the grantee.
If the grantee is buying the land from the grantor, the deed must also have consideration or a purchase price. This does not apply when the property deed is a gift. A lawyer needs to sign a certificate saying they prepared or supervised the deed preparation. Other legal documents may include a lien certificate application, application fee, land instrument intake sheet, payment of government obligations, or any transfer taxes that apply.
For every deed transfer, representation should draw up new legal documents. The documents protect the grantor’s interests. They then need to check that the deed is filed with their county’s Division of Land Records in the Circuit Court.
