Florida Quit Claim Deed Form


A Florida quit claim deed is a two (2) page form for conveying real property. No guarantees are provided to the recipient (grantor) with the deed. This is preferable in situations where the owner (grantor) and the grantee are related or well acquainted with one another, as the grantee needs to trust that there are no existing issues with the property’s title (such as lien or other defect). For the grantee’s ease of mind, a title search can be conducted to verify the title is free and clear.

Being the least formal of the deed types, it can be used without needing to consult an attorney or other professional (although doing so is still recommended). Another common use of the form is for correcting a mistake on the existing title, such as a misspelled name or address. Others can use the form during or after divorce proceedings to remove a spouse from the existing title. Once the form has been completed in full and signed in accordance with the requirements below, the grantor will need to record the form with the local county clerk.


  • Statute: § 695.01
  • Appraisal Parcel ID Number (§ 695.02): The property’s parcel ID number must be included in the form. This is specific to each city/town/county in Florida.
  • Recording Transmittal Sheet: The majority of Florida’s sixty-seven (67) counties require a Recording Transmittal Form to be filed with the deed. See the local county clerk’s website for additional information.
  • Signing Requirements (§ 695.26): The grantor(s) must have their signatures acknowledged by a notary public and two (2) witnesses. The grantee(s) do not sign the deed.
  • Recording (§ ): The completed and signed deed must be brought to the local county clerk’s office. A fee will be required for processing.
