Hi Harry. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today! It will take me just a few minutes to type a response to your question. Thanks for your patience!
This is a pretty simple process. You can certainly do this without a lawyer. You will need to sign a Quit Claim Deed transferring ownership to your son. You would sign this Deed, have it witnessed and notarized, and then record it in the real property records of the city/county where the property is located. I have attached a template of the Quit Claim Deed for you to save you the trouble and expense of searching for one elsewhere. :) You can easily fill it in with your specific information.
Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your questions. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow up questions, please ask! If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service as Good or Excellent (hopefully Excellent). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!
If you are selling a property and obtaining title insurance, you will need an attorney. But, you should not need an attorney if you are simply transferring title by gift.
You can get the legal description of the property off the existing deed. If you don't have a copy of the existing deed, you can get one from the real property records clerk. Here's the link to the location and recording of a deed for Fulton County: https://www.deeds.com/recorder/georgia/fulton/
