Good morning. In a situation like this, parties will normally execute a quit claim deed, when someone wants to be added to property or property is to be transferred. It is always best to use an attorney to draft it and to make sure it is fully executed and proper but you can also use a third party site like legalzoom.com to get the document or contact your local counties recorders office. You just want to make sure that by doing this, it does not accelerate the loan or cause any issues with the mortgage.
