Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you just wanting to amend your will to give your partner the property in FL?
Or do you want to add them to be an owner on the home now?
Or do you just want to give partner the right to live there until they pass, then to go to your children?
Sure, you can add her as a joint tenant with right of survivorship on the deed and she would then become an equal owner along with you. If one of you passed, the survivor becomes the sole owner instantly without any other action being necessary.
You would just need to have a local attorney draw up a new deed from you as the grantor over to you and her as the grantees as "joint tenants with right of survivorship".
Those phone call offers are not generated by me, but rather by the JustAnswer website. I am sorry but I do not participate in the phone call program for the site and limit my interaction with customers only to the website. I like to have time to think about a customer’s question and research it so I can provide the best answer possible.
However, if you wish to have a phone call with an attorney, you can post a request for "additional services" and your request will post to other experts that do offer this service. When another attorney accepts your request you will get additional instructions.
I am more than happy to continue on the website though..
So do you want to make her an owner of the house now, in the future, or just give her the right to live there? You can do any one of the 3 you want..
