Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Signing a house over to you requires the signing of a "Deed" to the property to you and then filing that deed in the county court "registry of deeds". Go down to the court where the deeds are filed and ask the clerk there for help. Better yet, ask a lawyer who does real estate law to do this for you. Probably would not charge more than a couple of hundred dollars.
All the best,
You can do it at time if the deed provides a life estate to you with a remainder to you son. Or, you could do it by a will. Or if thereis no will and your sone is your only child and you die unmarried, he would get it then anyway. As you can see,there is more way than just one to do what you want, and how you do it can have tax complications - so, best advice see a lawyer.
All the best,
