Hi KC,

You will have to file an affidavit of heirship at the county clerk's office in order to remove your deceased husband's name from the property deed. Once you file it, you'll become the sole owner of the property.

Thanks

My mother was in a nursing home with Alzeimers. My father's attorney had my father and myself sign papers to claim half of the house in his name.He had to sign the house over to me, then I had to reverse the process and sign it back over to him, so he would not lose the house to the state. She has since passed away and he would like to take her off the deed. He brought the death certificate to the register of deeds but they said they could not do it. What should he do?

Hi Barb!

Welcome to forums!

Your father will have to file an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office and get the property transferred in his name. On the other hand, he can even take the help of an attorney in this regard.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
