What is a deed?

A deed is a legal document that indicates ownership or transfers ownership of any real estate from the seller to the buyer. For deeds to be legal there are a few requirements. All deeds must be in some legible form of written type. This can include both physical and electronic copies of the document. But, in order for a deed to be contractual, it must be in writing. Deeds must also be signed by all property owners. 

Deed transfer process

When transferring real estate in Wisconsin, all sellers must submit a Real Estate Transfer Return document to get the transfer approved. This requires clear communication tailored to the letter of the law. Tusler Law can handle this for you. We also will take care of organizing the legal delivery process in which someone with the proper authority must legally deliver the deed to the grantee. 

Avoid common deed legal issues 

There can be many unforeseen legal issues with a property deed that you had no part in creating including:

  • Unknown or undeserved liens
  • Public record errors
  • Missing heirs
  • Undiscovered third-party encumbrances
  • Boundary disputes
  • Fraudulent or illegal deeds

Tusler Law is here to give legal guidance and help you understand and get through these issues with the best possible outcome.

Deed in lieu of foreclosure guidance

One alternative to foreclosure on your home is a deed in lieu. A deed in lieu can have many benefits over a foreclosure including less damage to your credit score and less possibility of personal reliability for any amount remaining on your mortgage. 

Tusler Law knows the process inside and out and will be with you the whole time to give guidance and legal advice. Thinking of getting a deed in lieu? Contact us today for a free consultation.

Wisconsin deed of trust legal guidance

Tusler Law provides legal advice and guidance for those considering or acquiring a deed of trust. A deed of trust is a type of secured real estate transaction which is similar to a mortgage. A deed of trust requires three parties: a lender, a borrower, and a trustee. The trustee receives the deed from the borrower. The borrower receives money from the lender, and the borrower gives a promissory note to the lender who will receive the deed from the trustee in event of loan default. Ron Tusler will walk you through this complicated process, ensure fair treatment, and help you understand the terms of the legal contract.
