Hi cxsi!

Welcome to forums!

You can definitely quit claim the property back to your husband. You can sign a quit claim deed and transfer the ownership to him. Once you do so, you will not have any claims on that property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi,

You can sign a quitclaim and make your husband the sole owner of the property. If both of yours name is there on the mortgage then even after quitclaim you will be responsible for the mortgage. In that case your husband needs to re-finance the mortgage loan in his name.

If you have any queries feel free to ask.

I went today with the quit claim deed, but was told I had to pay over 1,700 for doc stamps and recording fee. .70 cent per hundred on remaining balance owed on the home. If I was divorce it would only be $19.00

I would suggest you to speak to a real estate attorney regarding the property transfer. He will be able to let you know how much stamp doc fees you would have to pay.
