After separating from my husband in California, I moved to Texas and purchased a house. The mortgage is in my name only, but the lender required my husband to be on the title. We had filed a petition for divorce in California prior to the purchase. We are in the process of filing the divorce final papers and I need to make sure I get the house title transferred properly. Can this be done with just a quit claim deed or do we need other documents? Also, can we do this ourselves or do we have to involve a title company?

Thanks for you help!

Hi ekistner,

A quitclaim deed would suffice in transferring the property title from your husabnd back to you. To make sure the transfer is made properly you need to get it signed by your husband in front of a notary public, get it notarized and recorded with the county recorder's office. This will validate the deed. To know more on quitclaim deed, refer to the following page:

Hi o0wen!

Welcome to forums!

Your wife can transfer the property to you with the help of a quit claim deed. However, in order to take over the loan in your name, you would be responsible for refinancing it in your name. With a bad credit, it won't be possible for you to refinance the loan. Thus, your wife would still remain responsible for the mortgage. You can request your wife to keep the property and the mortgage in your name.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi scifitoyz,

If the property is in the name of all the siblings, then they will have to sign a quit claim deed to the one whom you all want to transfer it. It is always a better option to contact an attorney and take his help in this matter.

Thanks

I am a widow with house in my name--paid for. I would like to put my son on the title with me with rights of suvivorship.. Would he then become owner without negative effect when I die?

Hi Norma,

Once you add your son to the property deed with rights of survivorship, he will automatically become the sole owner of the property after your death. There won't be any negative affect on your son.

I am purchasing unimproved property (2 acres) in Texas for a cash amount. Do we need to go through a title company or a lawyer to get the title transfered to my name?
