Unfortunately, Mr. Millar's suggestion will not work in Florida. Florida is a notice state. Since you have notice of an earlier quit claim deed, a deed to anyone else who knows about the prior quit claim deed will not prevail, even if the deed is the first to be recorded in the public records. You should consult an experienced real estate lawyer in your area for advice on how to proceed

I defer to my Florida colleague's knowledge of local law.
