Hi Aixprovenceparis,

If there is a mortgage then you need to talk with lender about including you to title of the house. A quit claim deed can be used for this purpose.

You need to download a quit claim deed, and fill it up with the help of an attorney. You can do it yourself but taking help of an attorney is better.

Aaixprovenceparis, you do not have to get tensed about it.

Allow me to explain the process. Your husband will be named as grantor and you grantee as his will be making the deed to include you as co-owner of the house. After it is filled, you need to get it notarized and recorded with your county recorder's office. If these steps are followed, you name will get included on the title of the house.

"do we need a lawyer to do this or we can do it alone? should we call mortgage company?"
Consulting a lawyer is advisable as you cannot be sure if you do it on your own, even if some error occurs you will not be able to know.

Informing the mortgage company should be the first thing, as there will be change in title ownership he might ask for loan to be refinanced.

Aixprovenceparis,

First of all, you need to contact a lawyer and request him to draft a quit claim deed. He will draft the deed the way you want your property to be distributed.

Next, you need to get the deed signed by a notary public and then approach the County Recorder or the Register of Deeds to get the deed recorded amongst all other public records.

Once your deed is recorded, it becomes affective and a valid deed.

Thanks.
