Legal Answers
  • Q. my boyfriend and I have 2 houses one on each name. how do we do a quit claim deed to the other person in case of death
    A: I recommend titling both properties in your name and your boyfriend's name as "joint tenants with rights of survivorship". You and he will need to execute new deeds for each property to effectuate this transfer.
