All you need, if you want to deed it to yourselves as joint tenants, is to fill out a quitclaim deed from you to you and your husband as joint tenants, not as tenants in common, with right of survivorship.

Then record the signed, witnessed and notarized deed with the county recorder of deeds of the county where the property is located.

You can find a deed at the following link:

FL QUITCLAIM DEED

I am happy to continue if you have further questions.

don't understand the paper work, sorry, i confused just want to add his name
Real Estate Lawyer: Loren, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Well that is the form to add his name to title. If you do not understand how to fill it out then you should probably hire an attorney to prepare it and record it, to make sure it is done correctly and does not mess up the title.

If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys). Many attorneys, themselves, use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:

http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspx

It is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.

Also, The Florida Bar maintains an excellent online referral program:
