Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
If you have a clear and free title to it then you can do this on your own without an attorney.
You can legally sell it for as little as 1.00 but most family will put down at least ten dollars on the quit deed form.
The below form is what you need to fill out. Make sure you put the correct legal description in as this will mess things up. The legal description can be found on your property tax form.
Fill it out. Sign it. Have him sign it and have it notarized. No attorney is need for this. No real estate agent is needed for this.
After the paper work is filled out and notarized you/he will need to take it to your local parish to record within the parish that the tax collector is located. This is to be filed and recorded in the Clerk of the Courts office. He will have to pay recording and document stamp fees so that is why many family members will deed property over for 100 down to 10 bucks. This saves on the fees at the court house.
Once done he will need to go to the tax collectors office and show them the now recorded deed and the transfer of taxes will go from you to him.
I am not a tax expert and can not answer the tax question as that part needs to be posed in the tax section.
The below form is legal and binding in all 50 states. This is the only form that you need. This applies only if you have a clear and free title/deed.
