Hello. I asked for additional information from you yesterday. However, it appears that the request did not go through. I will opt out and another professional can help you if you still need help.

The lawyer who said that is wrong, a person who owns property can sign a quit claim deed to anyone whether or not the grantee is named on the mortgage. And because the grantee is the spouse of owner, the lender has to let her assume the mortgage, see item 6 at
He can sign a joint tenancy deed or a tenants in common deed if he wants to remain on title.
I hope this information is helpful.
