Wills & Probate

Why can’t I just record the Will to change the title to my parent’s property in Florida?

Recording a Will alone will not change the title to land or other property. No one will know if the recorded will was valid or if it was the final will of the decedent. Second, there are situations in which the property cannot pass according to the Will due to the nature of the property, estate creditors, or other reasons.  So a court order needs to entered through the Probate process finding the Will valid, recognizing the beneficiaries  and conveying title to property.
