Q: Is it possible to revoke a lady bird deed in Florida to replace it with a quitclaim deed ?
My grandfather wants to remove my aunt off of his lady bird deed and add my mother on a quitclaim deed instead. What will he need to have done to have the lady bird deed revoked?
A: You would need and want to have the current/original deed that created this interest reviewed, if it was properly drafted/created/worded, then generally, in order to be able to revoke the existing lady bird deed, all that the current owner would need to to do is validly execute a new deed. This is because usually an owner expressly reserves such a right in the lady bird deed when the property was conveyed. The newly drafted deed will then simply extinguish the interest granted by the old lady bird deed.
