    Answered . Florida Statutes do not specifically require the grantee's residential address, but the individual counties may have their own requirements for recorded deeds. The best course of action is to call the clerk for the county where the property is located and find out what their particular requirements are for information. As Attorney Deason points out, they have to be able to reach the property owner for tax role purposes.
