What about the costs involved?
Real Estate Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

The only costs here if you do it yourself would be small filing fee.

WRONG. In Florida you have to pay doc stamps. You sir, do not know what you're talking about. Check out this link: http://www.eanswer.com/real-estate-law/5vjc5-want-file-quitclaim-deed-state-florida.html
Real Estate Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I'm sorry I thought you were asking what the filing fees were.If you u are filing the deed then you would have to pay the stamp tax to transfer the property.

Real Estate Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

The tax here is due if the property has a mortgage, not assessed if there is no mortgage.Again thanks for letting me clarify here.
