California Homestead Declaration for Single Person
If you are a single person who owns a home in California, you should protect yourself against sale by creditors with this Homestead Declaration form.
- Filing the Declaration with the County Recorder creates what is called a declared homestead. A declared homestead protects your home from voluntary and/or forced sale.
- A single person homestead exemption will allow you to keep $75,000 of the equity you have built up in your property if your home is sold to satisfy debts or judgments, or if it acquired for public use.
- This is a template legal form which can be downloaded, filled in, and printed for signature.
- For use only in the State of California.
