Deeds for California Real Estate

Description:    The forms and information Californians need to transfer property to someone else.

                Whenever you transfer real estate in the Golden State -- because of marriage, divorce, death or for
                estate planning purposes -- you need a new deed.

                Deeds for California Real Estate shows you how to choose the right kind of deed, create it, then file
                it with the county recorder. It has all the forms you’ll need, with step-by-step instructions for
                completing them quickly and accurately.

                This book also shows you how to:

                -   change the way you hold title to real estate
                -   add someone to the title of real estate you own
                -   transfer real estate into, or out of, a revocable living trust
                -   use real estate as security for a loan
                -   buy out a co-owner of real estate

                Deeds for California Real Estate also explains disclosure requirements, community property rules,
                and tax and estate planning aspects of property transfers. The 7th edition is completely updated
                with the latest disclosure forms, federal gift and estate tax numbers, and information for registered
                domestic partners.
