Taking my name off a deed without my consent

My name is currently on the deed to my mom's house along with her name. Is there anyway that she can take my name off the deed without me knowing it???

Hello,

No. She cannot take your name out of the deed without your knowledge or signature. Only if signs a quitclaim deed or a grant deed then only your name will be out off the deed.

Who pay the mortgage payments? Are you also on the mortgage?

You can simply use a quit claim deed and take your name off the house deed or title. But who's on the loan? Chances are the lender could call the loan due and payable if there is a transfer of property-interest.

Hi SLEEPING BEAUTY,

Taking the name off the deed will not be difficult. All she needs to do is to sign a quitclaim deed thereby giving up her interest in the property to you. To know more on quitclaim deed, you can visit the following page:

Hi barbara,

A person's name cannot be taken off a deed without the knowledge of that person. In case your boyfriend did forge your name off the deed, it will be considered as a serious act of forgery and if his forgery is proven and the deed is declared as invalid, the court can take serious punitive action against him. Thus I'd suggest you to consult an attorney who is experienced in handling such forgery cases and register a case against him with the police.

Hi wl!

Welcome to forums!

Without his signatures, it would be difficult for you to remove his name from the property deed. You can consult an attorney and take his opinion in this regard. He will be the best person to let you know what steps you need to take in this situation.

Feel free to ask if you have further queries.

Hi puppygirl!

Welcome to forums!

You cannot change the name on the deed now as your mother is already deceased. You'll have to file an affidavit of heirship and transfer the property in your name.

Feel free to ask if you have further queries.

Hi patbone!

Welcome to forums!

Your cousin cannot remove your name from the property deed without your consent and signature. I think he has done something illegal to remove your name from the deed. Contact an attorney and discuss your options with him.

Hi sthblondie,

Your husband's ex-wife cannot transfer the property in her name without his signatures. I think there's something fishy out here. It would be better if your husband can take some legal help and sort out the issue. It seems that his ex-wife has taken some fraudulent means to transfer the property in her name.

Take care.

Welcome kerry,

You can use a quit claim deed in order to remove your name from the property deed but you won't be able to file bankruptcy immediately. You'll have to wait for 1 year after the property transfer and then go for bankruptcy.

We got married and she will not take her name off the deed. She is threating us with lawyers and keeping the kids away from him. She is trying to get money to take her name off of the deed. Her money requests change weekly. He refinanced the house last year without her; so she is not on the new mortgage with him at all. What can he do to get her name off of the deed so we can have some peace.

Hi felicia,

Your husband's ex-wife will have to sign a quit claim deed in favor of your husband and transfer the property to him. Once she does so, he'll become the owner of the property. Your husband can even buy her out by giving her a sum of money which is equivalent to her share in the property and ask her to sign the deed.

Hi dudzie,

As you've transferred the property to your daughter, then she is now the owner of the property. If she doesn't transfer the property to you, then you won't be able to force her to do so as it would be considered as illegal. It would be completely her discretion whether or not she would transfer the property to you.

You will have to ask him to sign a quit claim deed and transfer the property to you. Once you become the sole owner of the property, you would be able to sell it off.

Welcome carol,

As your mother was not medically fit to sign th property transfer documents, it was not legal on your brother's part to ask her to sign the deed. You can contact an attorney and check out what legal steps you can take in this matter.

While in personal BK 11, I/my company changed the residential use of my development of 5 homes to assisted living and care homes without the lenders knowledge. I currently have one care home operating and intend to open more next to eachother with special use permits. If the bank decides to foreclose, can the bank change the cc&r back to residential without my permission. I own all of the properties personally and the CC&R's are recorded in the business name.? #2 Also can the bank sue my company? #3 If the bank did foreclose, would the new recorded CC&R still be valid effecting the use to assisted living?

In 2008 my grandmother did a reverse mortgage in order to give me the funds to purchase a home for myself. During the closing I provided a cashiers check from my account to purchase my home. Do I need a quiet title action as I was forced to purchase this home and place his name on the documents?. Currently I possess a granted temporary order of protection for abuse and have a hearing date on November 5, 2010. He is currently on involuntary commitment at a mental institution. They are trying to stabilize him. He also has a summons in federal court as he is being charged with being a convicted felon in possession of a fire arm and creating a police standoff. After speaking to a criminal attorney, I was informed that he will be facing 10 years in prison. On the order of protection I've asked the court to give me possession of and order the defendant to leave immediately and not again enter my home and give me possession of the following personal household property including pets: all contents of furniture, appliances, electronics, and Morpheus (dog). The judge award me a temporary order and has indicated that the defendant is prohibited from entering the family residence. At the hearing I intend to ask for full ownership of the property and it's contents. I will provide original documents of the reverse mortgage made, bank wire between my grandmother and I for the purchase and a copy of the cashiers check paid for the property. What are my chances of the court granting me full ownership since he's going to prison for 10 years? Will they be able to allow me to amend the deed and title to just my name?

I'm so lost in all this!!!!

John, it ought to be impossible for anyone to do what you noted. Once you have signed a promissory note with a lender, it's valid until such time as the loan in question is paid in full. There's no way that another party (wife, ex-wife, husband, ex-husband, and on and on) can cause the lender to remove a name.

Now, if you had provided her with a [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]quit claim deed[/url] transferring your ownership interest in the property to her, she could take that document to the local lending office and obtain a new mortgage, which would then take you out of the picture, what with the initial mortgage having been paid in full. If that's what happened, it makes sense.

Otherwise, what you describe truly makes no sense whatsoever. Can you explain a bit more, perhaps, about how you came to know this?

Yes, but it'd be illegal and stupid. He's lose his interest in the property if he did that, in addition to you being able to sue him for the illegal act.

It isn't fair, Raymond. Every time I have used the word "stupid" in a post, I get this angry little message that advises me that I've used a bad word. Apparently, you must have some sort of angelic appearance that will allow you to "cuss" like that.

What's with the lawsuit jargon? You want them in court for another matter in addition to what could end up being a divorce action?

I'm so upset that you can use words that I can't...I'm going to sulk all night now.

Can my sister take my dead fathers name off my deed without my consent. She is the administrator to the estate and I share property in PA with my father. Do I really need a new deed because he died? We hold no mortgage to the proeprty we paid cash for it. Does she have to use the estate money to pay the taxes owed on our property? Does it count as one of his debits?

Hi Johngunnerman,

Unless an affidavit of heirship is filed at the court, your sister won't be able to remove your deceased father's name from the property deed. You will need a new deed after your father's death. Your sister may use the estate money to pay taxes.

Hi kimtruths!

Welcome to forums!

You and your deceased spouse's family members will be considered as the heirs to the property. Everyone can remove your deceased husband's name from the property deed by filing an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office. If your spouse's family sells off the property, then you should receive your spouse's share of the amount.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi kimtruths!

Welcome to forums!

You will be considered as the heir to your deceased husband's property. You should first try and add your name to the property deed by filing an affidavit of heirship at the county recorder's office. Once that is done, you can claim your share from the property when it is sold off. You can take legal help in this regard so that you get your due share of the property.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
