Question
what is the best way for our Mom to leave us her property.
Quitclaim deed or in a Will.we live in Orlando Fl. And there is a small mortgage on the house.

Answer
Dave,
Sorry for the delayed response. I answered the day you wrote this but I guess it did not make it to you.

The short answer is a will is the best way to leave the property.  Is your mother married, do you have siblings?  There are many questions and you should seek the advice of an estate attorney to make sure you get this done correctly.  

If there are other family members a quitclaim deed could be contested.
