If you want to sign your land over to your children, you need a property deed. Any change at all in ownership or status requires legal documentation (just another name for a deed). Of course, once you sign a deed, you have to file the deed with the authorities. Usually this means having it recorded at the County Recorders office or with the Recorder of Deeds. This action is referred to as the transfer or the conveyance of the deed and it takes place once the grantee accepts the conditions and the grantor signs the document and has it notarized.
The information you provide must be accurately described when recording in the public records and the steps you take must be done properly. Therefore, it is essential that you select the right kind of deed for transferring your property.
Lets take a look at the types of such documents that you might encounter in a real estate transaction. These are all forms of real estate deeds. The choice of the proper document depends on the type of real estate transaction.
A fiduciary deed is executed by a fiduciary. This happens when a trustee is appointed to deal with the property. An example would be when the property belongs to a minor and a guardian is appointed to handle legal matters until the property owner is of age.
