    What to watch out for

    In our research there weren’t too many complaints from users of the site. However, we did find some lawyers who have had a negative experience with LegalMatch. Most complaints from lawyers revolved around the way they were advertised of the site’s services, which was often through unsolicited emails. Some of these unsolicited emails contained examples of charges filed against individuals and their location. If the examples were real, that could be a privacy concern (though no names were used in the examples).

        Hi Victor,

        Thanks for reaching out! Once you buy a property, you have the liberty to put your name for the whole duration of your ownership unless otherwise property is transferred to another individual. Hope this clarifies!

      I’m going through a divorce and my wife is willing to give up her part of the house to me. The only thing is there are liens on the house. Will she still be obligated to pay those or when we do a Quitclaim to remove her name will they stay with the house or do they have to be paid at that time? Thanks for any assistance.

        Hi Donnie,

        Thanks for your inquiry.

        A quitclaim deed actually has no effect on the mortgage or lien, so even if your wife’s name is removed from the deed, all parties on the mortgage are still responsible for the payments. It’s best to speak to your lender about your plan of having your wife’s name removed from the deed so they can advise on what to do with the mortgage debt after a divorce.

        Hope this helps.

        Hi Shannon,

        Thanks for leaving a question on finder.

        Generally, when you’re removing a name from the deed, you’d need to have an agreement with the parties involved. If your husband’s ex-girlfriend’s name should be removed from the deed, she must consent that her name will be taken off. In case she does not give the consent, you must seek a lawyer’ advice. If without any problems or issues, the process of removal of name from the deed which is explained above can be followed.

        If you need anything else, please send us a message anytime.

        Hi Joyce,

        Thanks for your inquiry

        To remove a name from the property deed, you may follow the steps we have listed on this page in regards to lodging a Quitclaim.

        Kindly note that the signature of the person granting the deed (whose name is to be removed) and the signature of the person receiving it must appear in the Quitclaim for it to be valid.

        If you need help to deal with the trouble of handling your deed, consult with a real estate lawyer who’ll listen to your case for free.

        Hope this information helps
