      A commercial property that is up for demolition, which I am a grantee for through a quit claim deed. How do I not be held financially responsible? The property was originally my father’s and I was completely unaware of the conditions of the property. What steps should I take to get this matter cleared up before the city demolishes it?

      My home is all paid, but my ex boyfriend is on my deed. Can I remove him? How do I get my ex boyfriend off my deed and out of my house?

        Hi Brigitta,

        Thank you for contacting Finder.

        You need to speak with any co-owners of the house (your ex-boyfriend or other persons if there are other owners listed) to reach an agreement about removing your ex’s name from the title and why. For removing him, he needs to agree on the share of the property that it will be transferred to to you and how the ownership structure will be formed. You can head to our page How to remove someone’s name from a property deed to know more about the process so you can be guided. You may also need to talk to him about moving out of the house if you want him to leave. You can also seek legal advise should you encounter any legal issues during the process. You can click Apply Now button above and get legal advice on this matter.

        Hope this helps! 😊

        Kind Regards,

      Is giving sole-ownership of our mobile home to my husband by a quitclaim deed clears me from any back property tax there may be?

      • Avatarfinder Customer Care
        JhezFebruary 18, 2019Staff

        Hello Kathleen,

        Thank you for your comment.

        After you’ve signed a quitclaim deed, you won’t accumulate new tax debt, however, you are responsible for taxes that were due as of the day you signed the deed. If you don’t pay it, the property tax authority in your area can take legal action and force you to pay. The property may be sold to pay any back taxes, but you can also be sued for the debt. To minimize your tax liability, you can file the signed deed with your county recorder immediately, so that there’s no question about when you signed.

        The judge normally includes instructions for refinancing the property and handling all outstanding debts when a quitclaim deed results from a court order. It’s in both parties’ best interest to get the mortgage and any liens transferred into one person’s name, usually by refinancing.

        If you’re signing the quitclaim deed, it’s a way of making sure that you’re no longer responsible for those debts. For your husband that’s retaining ownership of the property, it insures that it won’t be foreclosed on due to the absent person’s failure to pay.

        You may want to ask for professional advice from a lawyer.

      I bought some property, how long do I have to put the property in my name ?

        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.

      How do I remove my husbands ex girlfriend from the title of the house? She is not on the mortgage . She says she will sign a quick deed but when we go to do it she won’t reply .

        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
