I'd like to know what kind of documents needed to transfer ownership of a property whose named is deceased and has grown up children.This did'nt involve any sale but only changing ownership to siblings of a deceased person.
This is not usually a simple process. You will need to get a copy of the deed and review it for starters. It will matter if there is a surviving spouse. It will matter if the property was Florida Homestead. If the property cannot be passed based upon the wording of the deed, then it is likely that a probate will be necessary to pass the property based upon the deceased person's Will through probate, if there is no Will, then the property will pass based upon Florida Intestate Statutes (without a Will), again a probate. There are too many unknowns at this point and you will likely need to speak with a Florida Probate Attorney in order to determine the type of probate that may be needed, if any, or if the property can be simply passed on based on the current wording of the existing deed.
Hire a probate attorney and the attorney will tell you how best to proceed.
Sounds like an issue to be resolved in probate. Hire a probate lawyer to review the deed and family tree as well as any will or trust to let you know what to do.
My comments are not intended to establish an attorney-client relationship, are not confidential, and are not intended to constitute legal advice. Proper legal advice can only be given by an attorney who agrees to represent you, who reviews the facts of your specific case, who does not have a conflict of interest preventing the representation, and who is licensed as an attorney in the state where the law applies.
Sounds like you are hoping to avoid court. Well, unfortunately that likely won't happen in this case. A judge's order is the only thing that can change title to the property the way you are asking.
IMPORTANT: No attorney-client relationship is formed through interaction with this attorney on this public forum. The contents of any comment or response should be considered general conversational discourse on the topic identified and NOT specific legal advice or analysis that might apply to your situation. If you rely upon any part of the content of this response in making any decision or pursuing any course of action, you do so at your own risk and without recourse against this attorney or law firm.
You will need to do some sort of probate proceeding in the County where the decedent passed away or where the property is located. Depending on the value of the property and the time since the decedent passed away, the estate may qualify for summary administration.
You should consult with probate counsel to explore available options.
