Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney whowill try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone whocan. There may be a slight delay in myresponses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
What type of papers do I need to have for him to sign over his part and would I go with how much the house was worth when I paid taxes for this pass year.
You would just need him to sign over a quitclaim deed from him over to you and then you would record it at the local land records office to complete the transfer. You can download a quitclaim deed form and complete it yourself and have brother sign it in front of a notary.
You can download a quitclaim deed template from a site like USLegalforms.com for minimal cost. I use this site myself as they have professionally drafted state specific forms that comply with all state laws.
As for the value, yes, the taxable value is considered appropriate to use for valuation purposes.
