How to fund a trust, add spouse, remove a spouse, and gift Florida Timeshares.
Owners of timeshares in Florida have life events that require ownership change of the timeshare. Those events are; creating a trust, adding a spouse due to marriage, removing a former spouse due to divorce, and gifting. Change of ownership is by deed.
A deed is a piece of paper 8 ½ by 11 inches. The deed is signed by the current owner to transfer ownership to a new owner. Deeds recorded in Florida require the current owner’s signature to be both notarized and witnessed by two individuals. One of the witnesses may be a notary. The deed is recorded with the County where the timeshare is physically located. A copy of the recorded deed is provided to the resort company to update their records.
Timeshares are often overlooked in funding of trusts. A trust is created. But if the timeshare title is not transferred into the trust, the timeshare will have to be probated. A deed transferring ownership from the individual to the individual as trustee of the trust avoids probate.
Alternative to Trusts, Joint Tenancy
Some timeshare owners as an alternate to trusts add a child or relative as a joint tenant owner to the timeshare. In joint tenancy the deceased owner’s interest disappears by operation of law. The surviving joint tenant becomes the sole owner.
In divorces and dissolution of marriage a Florida timeshare is awarded to one spouse. Until the non-owning spouse is removed as owner, he or she remains liable for property taxes and maintenance fees and has access to the timeshare. To remove a former spouse, the former spouse signs a deed conveying his or her interest to the owning spouse. This deed is often referred to as an inter-spousal deed.
Timeshare owners get married and wish to add the new spouse as owner of the timeshare. To add the spouse a deed must be prepared, signed by the owning spouse and then recorded with the County.
Often timeshare owners no longer want their timeshare. They cannot use the timeshare and cannot afford the ongoing maintenance fees. Timeshares can be difficult to sell. But people still want them. A solution is to gift the timeshare. The timeshare is gifted by quit claim deed.
Little or no money is exchanged so warrant of title, warrant of amount of debt outstanding, escrow and title insurance may not be needed and costs avoided. Quit claims convey ownership “as is.”
More on divorce and marriage
In divorce assets are divided and one spouse is awarded the Florida timeshare.
Until a former spouse is removed from title as owner of a timeshare he or she is still responsible for the maintenance fees and property taxes. The former spouse will also continue to have access to the timeshare. Removal of an owner is by deed.
A deed is a standard size paper formatted to meet the requirements of Florida Statute. The former spouse grants or conveys his or her interest to the owning spouse on the deed. The former spouse is the only signer. The signature must be both witnessed and notarized.
The deed is provided to the Court Clerk in the County where the timeshare is physically located. The Clerk copies and records the deed to make the deed part of the public record of owners of real property in the county. The deed is returned to the original owner.
A copy of the recorded deed is provided to the vacation resort company to update their records. Each resort company charges for this service and the cost varies from resort to resort.
Newlyweds often want to add each other on title as owners of real property. The owning spouse signs a deed adding the new spouse as owner. The deed is recorded with the county and a copy of the recorded deed is provided to the vacation resort company.
