Is quitclaim deed a way to remove co-borrower from title?

Posted on: 22nd Dec, 2005 09:28 am
I Claudia am the borrower on a house I have just bought a year ago. My brother Frank is the co-borrower he wants off on the house as far as ownership an off the credit report. Will a quick claim deed work for us?
Hi Janice!

Welcome to forums!

You can use a quitclaim deed to change your name as well as add your husband's name to the property deed. You will have to write your maiden name as the grantor of the property whereas your married name and your husband's name as the grantee to the property. As far as filling out the deed is concerned, you'll have to contact a real estate attorney in this regard.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi richard,

Unless she signs the deed, you won't be able to remove her name from the deed. You can't even force her to sign the deed as it will be considered illegal.

Hi Phyllis,

Unless the mother-in-law signs the deed and removes her name from the property deed, your niece's husband won't be able to become the sole owner of the property.
