Hello Mariodom,

If the property is being given to a family member as a gift, there will be no transfer tax. You will have to pay a nominal recording fee. And, if you want a certified copy you have to pay for that to.

When a property passes through sale the county applies a transfer tax. When a property transfers as a gift or with no value change, many times a transfer tax is not applied. There may be a recording fee, normally $10-35 dollars.
