Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

.

If mother wants to transfer her house in VA to you, then she would need to have a "gift deed" prepared by a local VA real estate attorney or a title/closing company from her as the "grantor" over to you as the "grantee". Once she signs and has the deed notarized, it would be recorded in the local land records office with the Circuit Court clerk.

.

I would suggest contacting a local title or closing company as they will be cheaper and faster and can assist with getting the deed signed, notarized and recorded for a small additional fee. A deed preparation should cost around $150 or so..
