Hi polizzottolp!

Welcome to forums!

If you are one of the owners of the property, then your spouse will not be able to transfer the property to someone else without your signatures. If he has done so, it'll be considered as fraudulent. You can contact an attorney and take legal actions against him.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi,

As per my knowledge your spouse cannot sign quitclaim without your permission. You need to consult with a good attorney immediately and take legal action against him. As after the quitclaim deed the property is on his sole name that's the reason he got the Heloc which is again can be taken care of as soon as you take legal action against him.
All the best.

Whoa! A [url=http://www.mortgagefit.com/quitclaim-deed.html]quit claim deed[/url] simply says you are transferring your interest, IF ANY – there are no “reps or warranties”. So the soon-to-be ex, could sign a deed on any property -- no ownership interest required. Doesn’t mean such deed transfers marketable or even full title.

My husband purchased several properties while we were married and I signed off on all the titles. He transfered titles three days before I filed divorce what are my legal rights.

Hi sofia!

Welcome to forums!

You need to check out whether or not your name is mentioned on the property deeds. If your name is mentioned on the property deeds, then you would be considered as the owner of the properties.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Hi Guest,

As you are the sole owner of the property, your husband won't be able to claim ownership rights to that property.

I am married and my husband just bought a property where the title company made me sign a quit claim deed to make the deal. The property needs upgrading and I am the only one with finances to do it. However, I will not make the repairs without some kind of protection for my interests.
How can I protect my financial contribution?

Hi Guest,

You can ask your husband to sign a quitclaim deed and ask him to add your name to the property deed.

Thanks

Hi Guest,

If you are not on the property deed, you don't have any rights on that property. In such a situation, if your husband is the owner of the property, then he can transfer the property to anyone he feels like.

Thanks

Hi shirley!

Welcome to forums!

You can sign a warranty deed and transfer the property solely to your husband. His signatures won't be required. Nevertheless, you should contact an attorney and take his opinion in this regard.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

My Father in law quit claimed out home we are buying from him. We have a contract with him, but he went and quit deeded our home to someone else. We have been buying it straight from him (his trust) for the past 8 years. Is there anything I can do? He also made the person he quit claimed it to, the new trustee of the trust.

Hi Guest!

Welcome to the forums!

You are in a complex situation. It will be better to get in touch with a real estate attorney and check out the ways to get it back from the new trustee.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.
