Am I able to have my name removed from a deed or transfer ownership?
Question Details: I currently own a manufacturered home with my brother who is a co-signer, however I want to move to another city and he wants to stay. Am I able to remove my name from the house deed so that he is the sole owner or can I transfer ownership to him and, if so, how may I do so? The deed has a secured party on it, they are who I pay my lot rent to. I've tried contacting them but they do not return my calls. If I'm unable to transfer ownership and we must sell the home, would I be able to just live somewhere else and maybe get an apartment in the meantime until I can sell as long as the payments are still being made on the house?
A quitclaim deed will release your entire right, title, and interest in the manufactured home to your brother.
The quitclaim deed is signed in the presence of a notary. The quitclaim deed becomes effective upon being recorded (filed with the County Recorder's office).
