Property Deeds In The State of Florida
In Florida, title to any property is controlled and transferred through a deed. There are two types of Deeds in Florida:
- Warranty Deeds
- Quitclaim Deeds

A quitclaim deed transfers title without stipulation of the validity of the title. In other words, they make no warranty that they actually own the property.
A warranty deed warranties that the granter actually owns and has title to the property. The granter can be sued if the title turns out to be invalid.
The state of Florida requires certain formalities for a deed or mortgage to be recorded. These formalities include:
- Two witnesses who attest to the grantor’s signing to assure authenticity
- Acknowledgment, which means attestation by a notary public or other public officer
- Delivery and acceptance
In a warranty deed, the grantor attests that the property hasn’t been sold to someone else, that it isn’t encumbered by anything apart from what the seller has already disclosed, and that the property is free from any title defects.
