Hallo community

How to fill out a grant deed form on your own or are there in California any services available from people that can do it for me.

How does someone handle that who lives in Europe.

Most likely he will have the paperwork filled out by a service in the US and have it sent to him.
Than he will go to a American Consulate nearby him and will sign the papers in front of a notary public.

Does he have to register the papers right away or can he wait still for a few month.

Once the property is given away , can anybody reverse the transaction.

Would like to hear from you in this matter and thank you very much for your help.
With best regards , Iser

Welcome ke6yl,

You can fill out the grant deed yourself without taking any help. But if you are not feeling confident enough to fill it out, then you can take the help of an attorney.

If you are grantor to the property, then I think, you will have to come down to US from Europe and sign the documents and get it notarized and recorded. If you are the grantee, then the papers can be sent to you by the grantor.

It's always better to record the deed immediately but you may wait for few months before recording it. If both the grantor and the grantee are ready to reverse the transaction, then it's possible.

Hi
Thank you very much.
What if I am not able to come to the US for health reasons.
There are consulates in Europe.
Will I be able to do it at a consulate ?

Also how long the most can someone wait to get a deed recorded.
Lets say I sign it with my daughter and we wait for several years.
Will than there be tax problems if she would not record the deed right away or some years later ?

Hi Guest!

Welcome to forums!

I think you will not be able to sign the documents at a consulate but the best option will be to consult an attorney in this regard and take his opinion.

As far as the recording of the deed is concerned, I would suggest you to record the deed as soon as possible. If you do not record the deed, the deed will not be considered as valid.

Feel free to ask if you have further queries.

Hi Mark,

I don't think you need any preliminary change of ownership report. To get more information on grant deed you visit the following page, if you want:

Hi ANTHONY,

As there is a mortgage on the property, it cannot be transferred to you through a grant deed. The owner will have to use a quit claim deed in order to transfer the property to you.

Thanks
