My ex-wife's name is on the deed to my 2rental house. she surrendered her claim today in a bankruptcy. Do I need a Quit Claim Deed to assume the own

Question Details: One Mortgage is in her name only and the other is in both our names. The banks say they cannot take her name off the loan and make me the sole Mortgagee unless she files a Quit Claim deed, which she refuses to do. She says it is not necessary, that by surrendering the houses in the Bankruptcy, the houses are automotically not hers and it doesn't matter what the deeds say. The Trustee agrees that I can have the houses and the Bankruptcy court has no interest in them. What is the true status of the houses?
