220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP
220.0133 Date of Change. An undelivered deed will not pass title to property. Deeds take effect only when delivered; however, delivery is a question of fact to be determined from all of the circumstances that will divulge a grantor's intent. When a grantor retains the deed, continues to live in the property, and claims the homeowner's exemption thereon, it is reasonable to conclude that ownership changed only on actual delivery and recordation of the deed. C 6/24/1994.
