Good morning. What you will need to get him released from the Deed of Trust will be a Release of Lien signed by the lender. This would not come from the tax assessor's office. Rather, the lender would need to provide their form of Release of Lien or you could provide a form for them. If you need a Release of Lien template, let me know and I'll be happy to provide one for you.
Yes....that's what you would record with the county clerk once signed by the lender. That would mean you would not need to refinance. :) The template is attached.
You're welcome...it's my pleasure!!
Thanks for following up. This is simply a template. You can simply delete this portion as it's not applicable in your situation. :)
So, is he on your deed as well? If so, the estate needs to sign a quit claim deed transferring his interest.
That's not true; if the lender is willing to release your FIL from the loan, then there is no need to refinance. This release form is different than a release of lien. It's simply a form the bank provides agreeing to release your FIL from liability on the note.
I will attach a quit claim deed for you. :)
