Tenants by the Entirety Explained

Tenants by the Entirety is from the English Common Law and provides a method of concurrent property ownership for married couples in the State of Florida that prevents individual creditors from attaching and selling the interest of the debtor spouse. This article will further explain what that means with examples and comparisons to other methods of concurrent ownership.


Understanding Quitclaim Deeds

In its absolute simplest form, a quitclaim deed transfers the interest in a property from a "grantor" to a "grantee" without any special warranties, guarantees or promises about the property. So, by definition, quitclaim deeds are not a safe method to receive interest in a property from an unknown or untrusted grantor because it does not ensure a clean title.
