Did son ever sign on any mortgage loan?
Would he agree to be removed from the deed?
Ok, then he wouldn't be liable for any debt after a foreclosure if he didn't sign off on the mortgage. A lender can only come after someone on the loan. He is just a co-owner so he would be included in any foreclosure action just to cut off his rights to the property. But he isn't liable for the debt.
He would have to be the one to quitclaim deed his interest to someone else, you can do it for him. Only the owner can get rid of their interest.
He can download a quitclaim deed form from a website like USLegalforms.com for a minimal fee and then complete it and have it signed and notarized from him over to you. Then it is filed in the local land records office and that would serve to transfer his interest over to you.
