We require a deed search for quality assurance. For the new deed to be verifiably and lawfully correct it is pertinent that we verify the last recorded deed in the courthouse for the deed that you are making a change to.
Have all grantees sign it in front of a local notary or invite everyone over and have our notary come to you. The final step is very important. You must have the document filed in the courthouse for it to be official. If it isn’t filed it doesn’t legally exist. We will come get the deed from you and file it for you or you may file it yourself. You may also receive a Transfer Tax Statement of Value with your deed. This must also be taken into the courthouse and filed with your new deed. If you need assistance, they will help you fill it out there.
We offer single transaction real estate specific POA’s. They may be used if one or more parties is unable to sign for any reason. It could be they are unable to sign that day, they are elderly and need help, or they are in a different country.
There are many reasons why. One of the most common reasons is , If your husband/wife dies and you are not on the deed, the property might be subject to probate (the official proving of a will). If the home was purchased during the marriage and was paid for with community property (your wage income), then you would inherit the entire home and you could avoid probate with a Spousal Property Petition, which is much cheaper and faster than probate. If the owner (husband or wife) first purchased the home before he/she married you, or he/she may have inherited it, then all or a portion of the home is the deeded spouses’ sole and separate property. If the spouse were to die without a will, then you would inherit only one-half of his/her separate property interest (if he/she has no children or only one child) or one-third (if he/she has more than one child). There could be a big mess if the deeded spouse dies — you could be pitted in a legal dispute with your own children or stepchildren, or even more distant family members.
