If I’m buying a house that is listed as a homestead do I have to re-homestead the house when I buy it? If so, where do I need to go, what do I need, etc.

Yes, you have to apply to have the homestead credit registered in your name. As I recall, when we bought our house, the realtor (or the closing company, I don’t recall which) had the necessary paperwork ready for us at the closing. All we had to do was sign it and submit the application to the county.

Yes, your realtor should have the paperwork at closing. Sign it and drop it off at the county courthouse and you’re good to go.

When you go to the courthouse, they’ll ask you if you live at the property so tell them yes. If you say, “we’re moving in next Monday”, they’ll tell you to come back on Monday.
