Navigating The Challenges Of A Deed Transfer
Need to add or remove someone from the Deed to your property? When you find yourself needing to transfer a deed for any reason, you want to be sure it is being done legally and correctly, so you can maintain the integrity in your “chain of title”, while also protecting your best interests at the same time. Thankfully, you can accomplish both goals with the help of a skilled New Jersey real estate attorney.
At Mariano & Coiro, P.C., we help individuals and real estate professionals through the most challenging real estate needs, including deed transfers. No matter what kind of deed transfer you are dealing with, our Somerset office has the experience and skill to help you.
Common Types Of Deed Transfer
Over the years that we have been dealing with deed transfer matters, we have helped our clients through various Deed transfers, including:
- Transfer on death – Removing a party as a record title owner who has passed on.
- Transfer to Add Owners- Used when a party is married and desires to add a spouse, or perhaps adding a child or children to facilitate future estate planning related title transfer.
- Life Estate Deed – A form of deed that reserves the right for the owner to utilize the property for life, which then passes automatically upon death to other named individuals (usually children or other family members).
It is crucial that new Deeds be prepared by an experienced real estate attorney. Deeds must be properly prepared and recorded in the County Clerk’s Office to be recognized as valid and effectuate the desired transfer of title. The requirements are numerous and stringent and should be properly adhered to. An improperly prepared or recorded Deed will cause title difficulties in the future that may prevent the sale of the property or cause the entire re-drafting and re-recording of all documents, which could be difficult or impossible due to the age, mental state, or outright unavailability of parties necessary to re-execute documents.
