Okay. Can you tell me what your specific question is?
It's incorrect to say that you can "add" a name to a deed. That's an ancient term that was used a long time ago when a physical piece of paper actually was passed around indicating ownership. These days a new deed is executed and signed by the owners of the property that would have the name "added" to it. The "best" way would be a warranty deed, although a quitclaim deed would also work. Here's a link to a some deed forms: http://www.uslegalforms.com/deedforms/colorado-deed-forms.htm. You would be looking to the "individual to two individual" forms. In each of the forms, the "grantor" of the property would be the current owner, and the "grantees" would be the current owner AND the person to be added. As a 100% owner is transferring equally to himself/herself and someone else, each person would own 50% (or if there were multiple people "added", each person would own an equal percentage). After the deed is signed and notarized, the grantee can record it in the county deed records.
