I own a home with my 4 siblings. We'd like to take one name off of the deed. We live in the state of California and the mortgage is paid off. How do we do this?

Hi Nay!

Welcome to Forums!

You can ask the person to sign a quitclaim deed and give away all his/her interests in the property. You can notarize the deed in the county recorder's office for safety.

Feel free to ask if you have further queries.

My brother buys a property only in his name when he gets the deed he wants to change the deed to add two other persons to the deed. Will this have ramifications from internal revenue service and added fees?

Welcome aliciacarmenp!

Your brother can add two more people to the deed of the property. But there will be transfer fees and stamp docs. If property ownership changes, then there are chances that the property taxes will reassessed.

Hi aliyeva,

Is the title solely in your name? If yes, then you can simply refinance the mortgage in your name to get your deceased husband's name off the it. If the answer is no, then you need to change the title to your name by filing the death certificate with the county recorder's office. Once it is done you can refinance or you can also request the lender to take his name off the loan.

Thanks,

Jerry

Welcome,

To Tracy,

Your father and father in law can fill out a quitclaim deed in order to add your name to the property deed. Once the quit claim deed is filled out, it needs to be notarized and recorded at the county recorder's office.

To Marcia,

Your mother will have to sign a quitclaim deed in your name in order to transfer the property to you. Once she signs the deed, you should notarize it and record it. Once you record the deed, your mother's name will be taken off the deed.

Hi Cymrudyn,

You will have to sign a new grant deed which would include the term "with right to survivorship". You can contact an attorney and he will be able to draft the new deed for you according to your requirements.

Thanks

My father in law owns his home f &C. His deceased wife is on the deed. 6 yrs. ago he remarried. He did not place the new wife on the deed and she just left him and they are separated. Can he drop his deceased wife's name from the deed and add one of his daughters to it ?

Welcome Darrel,

Your father-in-law can file an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office and transfer the property in his name. Then, he can sign a quit claim deed and add his daughter to the property deed.

My sister added me to the deed on her new house. I am married and California is a property state, so does this automatically make my wife part-owner? Does it automatically include my wife on the deed? In case of divorce, does my wife have any right to my & my sister's house?

As it's a community property state, your husband will have rights to the property if your name is added to the property deed.
