Good morning. You need only do a quit claim deed from the existing owners as tenants in common being the grantors to the owners as joint tenants with right of survivorship as grantees. The grantors will need to sign the deed, have it witnessed and notarized, and then recorded in the Tarrant County real property records. That's it!

 

 

I hope this has given you information that has been helpful to you. I wish you the best of luck!

Great...one last question: I have a signed, witnessed, Community Property Survivorship Agreement (CPSA) that covers all our property (house, cars, everything). Does this (CPSA) do the same thing for the house as the quitclaim document? Thanks...Promise last question.
