    One of the Vistana units that my wife and I own is jointly owned with her sister and (now) ex-husband. We have decided that we want to sell this unit. The ex-husband relinquished any ownership right in the divorce settlement, but his name remains on the deed. Can anyone tell me how to obtain a Florida quit-claim deed and how to go about using this to remove the ex-husband from the deed so that we can sell this unit without further complications?
    Feel free to reply directly to rsrobins53 ATSIGN hotmail.com.
    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that the professional timeshare closing service agencies all know how to take care of situations like that -- Timeshare Transfer Inc. & Timeshare Closing Services Inc. & JRA Services Inc., etc.

    Good luck.

    Actually Alan, in the State of Florida and many other states, the preparation of a deed that is not being insured by title insurance is considered the practice of law and an attorney licensed and admitted to the bar in that state is who is supposed to be preparing those deeds.

    I sent the poster and email with someone they can call on Monday that is a Florida Attorney that can prepare the deed for a reasonable cost.

    JRA would be able to as well as they have an attorney on staff, but the other 2 to my knowledge do not have a Florida admitted attorney on staff.

    I was going to mention JRA as well, their fee is reasonable and as far as I know they have an attorney on staff.

    I respectfully disagree...

    In every one of the numerous FL timeshare transacations handled for me by Timeshare Transfer, Inc. of Vero Beach, FL in recent years as both buyer and seller (about 8 individual transactions in total), Attorney John E. Banks, Jr., Esq. has signed all of the Timeshare Transfer documents. On each and every such closing document package, the following appears pre-printed upon on the cover page, quoted only in relevant part, but verbatim:

    "The transfer of Real Property creates legal rights and legal obligations. John E. Banks, Jr., Attorney at Law, is licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and represents...."

    Sure seems like involvement of a "Florida admitted attorney" to me...:shrug:

    I'm going to be heretical here and say that, actually, if you or someone you know is adept at copying documents, you can likely DIY. Go online to find a Florida QCD form or sample from some outfit like www.nolo.com, and insert the pertinent information from the deed you hold with his name as Grantor.

    The ex-relative needs to sign the deed b4 two witnesses & notary (the notary can also be a witness), with names printed below the signatures. Then call the the public records department of the County Clerk where the resort is located for recording instructions and fees.
