What is entailed in getting my name off of a deed to my mothers

What is entailed in getting my name off of a deed to my mother's home in Florida?
Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Good morning. To whom do you want to give your interest in the home....your mother? Thank you!

Yes the deed is in both my name and my mother's. I want to remove my name from the deed and give my interest to my mother.

Thanks so much for your reply. It's a simple process. You simply need to sign a quit claim deed transferring your interest to your mother. The deed then needs to be witnessed, notarized, and recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. Let me know if you need a template for a quit claim deed and I'll be happy to provide one for you.

If you could forward the template that would be great. Once notarized etc. is it in effect as soon as I send it to my mother's real estate agent? My mother signed a contract to sell her home. I do not want my signature on ANY of the paperwork in case she backs out of the deal and faces lawsuits. She sold the house too quickly and has not secured a new residence.

I have attached a template below. As soon as signed and delivered it is effective; but you want to make sure it gets recorded in the real property records so it's part of the public record for the title company.
