Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I'll be here to help today! Do you mind if I take a moment to review your question? By the way, the system will automatically ask for a phone call. I am happy to speak with you, but by no means are you required to accept it.
You have a couple of options here:
1. You could change the deed such that it does not show that you are joint tenants with right of survivorship. You can change the deed by making yourselves co-tenants without right of survivorship. This means that if you die, your property will go to your personal interest.
2. You could buy the other person out for a price that you deem reasonable.
3. You could encourage the other party to simply give you a quitclaim titling the house to you directly (I'm sure this is less likely, but still an option).
Follow up questions are free, so please feel free to ask away. You can also click here in the future to request me individually. If you don’t have any additional questions, were you satisfied with my service today?
