After separating from my husband in California, I moved to Texas and purchased a house. The mortgage is in my name only, but the lender required my husband to be on the title. We had filed a petition for divorce in California prior to the purchase. We are in the process of filing the divorce final papers and I need to make sure I get the house title transferred properly. Can this be done with just a [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]quit claim deed[/url] or do we need other documents? Also, can we do this ourselves or do we have to involve a title company?

Thanks for you help!

Mom's house free and clear. I am the executor of her estate with the profits of sale to be shared with siblings. Can I just sell the house and divide the profits or is there something else I need to do for the buyers and all that legal stuff?

Welcome kathleenrice,

It will be better if you could contact a real estate attorney and take his opinion in this regard.

Hi ekistner,

A quitclaim deed would suffice in transferring the property title from your husabnd back to you. To make sure the transfer is made properly you need to get it signed by your husband in front of a notary public, get it notarized and recorded with the county recorder's office. This will validate the deed. To know more on quitclaim deed, refer to the following page:

I thought this was probably the case, but wanted validation. Thank you for your help!
