How do I get my deceased husband name of a commercial property

This answer was rated:

How do I get my deceased husband name of a commercial property deed? I want to sell the property. The property is in Seattle, Washington. Thank you.
Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.

Good afternoon. Did your husband have a will? If so, were you named the executor of his estate in that will? Did his will provide for you to be the beneficiary of the property? Thanks.

Yes he did have a will. Everything was willed to me.

Thank you so much for following up. In that case, you would sign a quit claim deed transferring title to title to you. You would sign the deed on behalf of your husband's estate as the executor. The deed would need to be witnessed and notarized and then recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located. If you need a form for the quit claim deed, let me know and I'll be happy to provide one for you.

Thank you for you clear answer. Just to clarify, as executor, I would just be transferring my husband's interest in the property to me, right? Looks pretty straightforward. Thanks again.

You're's my pleasure. That's exactly right. It is pretty straight-forward.
