Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If you want to make the other person an equal owner, then you would fill out the quitclaim deed form with you being the grantor and then with you and the other person being the grantees. That way you would automatically both be 50% owners once the quitclaim deed is notarized and recorded at the local land records office..
Let me know if you have further questions..
Here is a link to a site that sells one cor CO from one person to two individuals as joint tenants:
Quitclaim 1 to 2 JT
And just by listing two individuals as the grantees, they are automatically 50% owners each as a matter of law. If you don't want them to automatically be 50/50, you have to actually state a different percentage as the default is exactly equal ownership.
