This one is worth repeating. Over and over and over again. Especially now in this market. If you are purchasing property, you need to know how you would like to take title. If the property is your homestead, Florida has strict laws regarding how homestead property must be titled. If you are creating an LLC or taking title in a Trust or existing LLC, there are additional requirements that must be met to certify that you have authority to do so. Ask your real estate agents. Ask your title agents. Ask your attorneys what you need to do depending on your situation. Doing so will make for a much smoother closing!
