Real Estate Documents / Accommodation Deeds

We are experts at preparing and recording accommodation deeds in all California counties as well as out of state. We have built successful relationships with many escrow and title companies.

What are the advantages of having a Deed Prepared by Laguna Legal vs. Doing It Yourself?

So often we hear that property taxes were increased by thousands of dollars per year as a result of people preparing their own deeds. We are experts at preparing and recording deeds and we have been providing this service for over 20 years. Our deeds are coded properly to avoid property tax reassessment, whenever possible. Sometimes this requires multiple steps which we handle for you.

We personally hand deliver your documents to the Orange County Recorder’s office for recording.

Laguna Legal prepares various deeds including:

  • Trust Transfer Deeds
  • Interspousal Transfer Deeds
  • Quitclaim Deeds
  • Grant Deeds
  • Warranty Deeds
  • Easement Deeds

The cost to prepare and record a Deed or Affidavit of Death for a property in California is $500.  This fee includes the recording fee.  For out of state properties, the cost is $600. Proposition 19, which went into effect on February 16, 2021, changes the property tax reassessment exclusion qualifications for transfers between parent(s) and child(ren).  If the transfer is a result of the parent(s) death which occurred prior to February 16, 2021, the date of death could be considered the transfer date.  If your transfer qualifies under the new rules, we can prepare and file the Parent Child Reassessment Exclusion form for you for $250. Transferring title to a new party, including transfers from a parent to a child, can trigger a property tax reassessment if not prepared properly.

In addition to accommodation deeds we also prepare the following legal documents:
