Florida Real Property, Estates, Trusts and Probate: Introduction

This guide supports research into issues relating to Florida Real Property, Probate, and Trust law.

An Overview of Florida Real Property, Estates, Trusts & Probate Law

Florida law governing real property financing and transfer, inheritance, estates, trusts and probate is primarily state statute-based and judicially interpreted.  There has been some back-and-forth between the legislature and the judiciary, as the judiciary interprets legislation, and the legislature reacts to the interpretation.  A knowledge of federal and state income and transfer tax legislation, regulations, and judicial interpretations is an important component of a real estate practice or an estates and trusts practice.

See Guide to Estates, Gifts, and Trusts for general information.
