Background Discussion
  • On May 6, 2015, a Personal Representative's Distributive Deed between Mary Ann Pearman-Murphy, as personal representative of the Estate of Mary I. Davis, and Manatee County was recorded with the Manatee County Clerk of The Circuit Court.
  • The Manatee County Property Appraisers Office (PAO) was notified by Board Records of the deed recording. Staff at the PAO notified the County Attorneys Office (CAO) of the recorded deed. Staff at the PAO then confirmed the deed was recorded erroneously as the property was intended to be deeded to a beneficiary of the owners estate.
  • The PAO has since removed the erroneously recorded parcel from their records.
  • Representative counsel for the beneficiary contacted Property Acquisition Division for assistance to resolve the matter.
  • A Quit Claim Deed to the beneficiary was drafted for review by the CAO via a Request For Legal Services (RLS) attached to this agenda. 
  • An executed Quit Claim Deed reverting ownership from the county back to the estate was recommended to better reflect the statutory requirements of Florida Statutes, Chapter 125, Section 125.411.
