You can accomplish this in two ways:

(1) by doing a Quitclaim Deed from you as the Grantor to you and your husband as Tenants by the Entirety as the Grantees. This means that once you have passed your husband becomes the sole owner of the property. You still have interest in the property while you are still alive;

(2) by doing a Quitclaim Deed from you as the Grantor to your husband as the Grantee. This means that you no longer have ownership interest in the property while you are still alive.

You can do the Quitclaim Deed by using your current Deed as a sample or retain a local real estate Attorney to prepare the Deed for you. You can also obtain sample Deed forms online.

You can use the following sites to find local Attorneys:

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
