My ex boyfriend and I bought a house in November 2006. We split up in May 2007 andhe moved out. Both of our names are on the deed, but only mine is on the mortgage. How do I get his name off the deed so that I can move? He thinks he is entitled to half of what the mortgage is before he will take his name off of anything voluntarliy. I think not.

Welcome to the forums.

I think you have some misunderstanding regarding who is you on the mortgage and deed and who is not. So I think it is much better to go to the lender and see whether your boyfriend's name is also on the mortgage or not.

If your boyfriend is not on the mortgage, then he can simply quitclaim the property to you. But is he ready to quitclaim the property to you?

Best of luck,

Hi Hippi,

First of all, let me ask, where do you reside? Is it a community property state? Secondly did you ex-boyfriend make monthly payments on the mortgage or were it just you paying for it?

If none of the above hold true, then your ex-boyfriend should be entitled to half of the mortgage and if he doesn't understand this and transfer his share of interest to you so that you own the home solely then it's better you hire an attorney. The attorney will be able to help him understand this and the thought of any legal action being taken against him might force him to take his name off the deed without claiming any share of the equity.

Take Care

Very carefully! Thats how. I had an ex and he wanted my name of the deed to his dad's farm. I madfe a deal with him to put the mobile home our son was living in ,in our son's name. Well to make a long story short some how he sent me the title to show me (as my request) that the title was indeed in his name.But some how he he ended up not getting the mobile home.So be careful you don't get tricked like I did.

Hi Patricia,

Thanks for sharing your experience with the community.

I've often come across people who've been deceived in this way. And you don't even come to know until it's done. So, one really has to be careful enough to avoid such problems especially things like losing your home or your money etc.

But hey, thanks anyway for helping the OP. Smile

I hope you'd like our community and enjoy visiting here.

Good luck
