Same sex marriage became legal in the State of Florida on January 6, 2015. And up until now, gay and lesbian couples had no rights as a married couple, despite being legally wed in other states. There are, however, legal issues that remain unresolved concerning same sex marriage that can and will impact real property and ownership rights.
So how are the underwriters handling the issuance of title to same sex married couples (SSMC)? Here’s the legal lowdown.
My personal advise to SSMC’s…hire a knowledgeable attorney to represent you so that your interests’ are protected.
