Thank you

YOu can accomplish that with a quit claim deed. YOu sign the deed (in front of a notary) and give it to her. She can take it to the county records office and have it recorded...then you are done

For a phone call, there will be an option you can select from your interface.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

I am a different attorney as the attorney that was assisting you opted out. The way to have your name removed from title is to have a quit claim deed prepared transferring title out of both of your names to her name alone. The only way to be removed from the mortgage is by refinancing the property into her name alone or paying off the mortgage. Where in Texas are you located so I can provide you with a link for a local attorney that can prepare a deed for you and assist with the mortgage?

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.
