Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
It depends here if she was awarded the property as part of separation then she would be the owner.The husband here would have quit claimed his interest as part of the separation agreement.If this was not done and the title remained a joint tenancy with right of survivorship then it passed by deed to the husband as legal survivor.She should have forced resolution of the home as part of any legal separation agreement.Please don't shoot the messenger it depends on whether anything was completed as part of legal separation that gave her his interest or not.
If the joint tenancy with right of survivorship remained in effect then it passes by deed since she did not resolve it as part of legal separation.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thanks again I am so sorry for your loss of loved one.
Thanks again, it depends here on whether she did anything to award her the property as part of legal separation and a quit claim by the husband.
