My father, mother, wife and I purchased a home in Texas. My father passed away two years ago. My mother wants to remove her name from the title. She is 88yrs old and no longer living in the home. She thinks that it would be easier transfering the property now rather than after her death. Is this correct? What is the best way to do this? I have a sister who knows of the situation and agrees with the transfer.

Hi dbarkehanai,

You can ask your mother to sign a quitclaim deed in your favor. This will help you in transferring the property to your name. Once the quitclaim deed is filled out by your mother, you need to notarize it and record it at the county recorder's office.

Welcome to forum. QuitClaim would be the quick and easy way accomplish what you are trying achieve. But QuitClaim will not remove your mother from any pending loan on the property. Shw ill be still responsible for the loan, if any exists.

Thank you.

You will also have to file an Affidavit of Heirship to get your father's name off title.
