In 2019 the Florida Legislature passed HB 1419 calling for witness addresses to be included on instruments conveying real estate from one party to another and a Title Fraud Prevention Through Identity Verification Pilot Program with the Lee County Clerk. 

In Lee County, the practice of receiving copies of government-issued photo identification of the grantee and grantor has been in place for a couple months when requesting the recording of a deed in-person or by mail. On June 1, 2024, the program will expand to include eRecordings.

For more information on the expansion please review this information sheet, Lee County Identity Verification Pilot Program. 

Additionally, you may also want to visit the Requirements for Recording Deeds web page on the Lee Clerk site for Deed Requirements and FAQs.
