I RECENTLY DID MY MIAMI BEACH ESTATE PLANNING DOCUMENTS, CREATED A REVOCABLE TRUST AND MY MIAMI BEACH ESTATE PLANNING ATTORNEY ADDED MY HOMESTEAD TO MY TRUST BY DEED, WILL THE HOMESTEAD OFFICE ACCEPT THE TRANSFER AUTOMATICALLY?
The Miami-Dade County homestead office will not accept the transfer automatically. Without a deed transfer, they will send the homestead paperwork to your address confirming that it remains and asking you to respond by reporting any changes that may disqualify you. For example, you no longer live at that address. In the case of moving your homestead into your trust, you must be the trustee of your trust during your lifetime and have the special required homestead language in both your new transfer deed and the trust itself. The same is true for the 10% non-homestead cap, you must send a copy of the deed and your signed trust to the property appraisal office by email, mail, or by going to them in person and explaining your request to maintain your exemptions.
