Thank you for the reply. Yes, a quit claim deed can be executed by the parties. If that is done, you can remove/take your name off title and the home will be held solely in his name. I just want to share, that if you are on the loan/mortgage, this would not remove it or your financial obligation or liability. Removing your name from the deed just has to do with ownership and legal title.
