Hi PAMELACHENAULT,

Since it's heir property, it automatically passes onto the next generation of successors. Thus, though your names do not appear on the title, I think you guys are the legal owners of the property and there's no need for you to change the title. However, If you really want to see the names on the title you can opt for a Quiet Title. But again, I'd say, that might not be needed.

Hi dndylnd!

Welcome to forums!

You can ask your father to sign a quitclaim deed and add your names to the property deed. Once he does so, you all will be considered as the owners of the property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi Regina!

Welcome to forums!

You will have to file an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office and get the property transferred in your name. It will be better if you could take the help of an attorney in this regard.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
