Is a quick deed legitimate or another?
Thanks for your question and good evening.
It is possible here to add your name to the title by a quit claim deed.The person on the title as grantor would quitclaim it to both of you as grantees.Once filed you would then be joint owners of the property.It is the means to add a person to the title of the property.You can do this yourself or have a local lawyer do it pretty quickly and inexpensively.
Here is sample quitclaim form for Texas.It appears this is your state where the property is located.
Once it is completed it if filed in the county clerks office in the county where the property is located.The original once filed and microfilmed is returned to you.
