Adding a Family Member to a Deed
In Michigan, it’s very common for a homeowner to add a spouse or child to their home’s deed as a way of ensuring the property stays within the family in the event of their passing away. Another common reason for taking this step is to avoid the cost and inconvenience of the probate process.
That being said, there are also a few disadvantages to adding someone to your deed if it is not handled properly, such as creating holes in the chain of title, or complicating a future sale of the property. To determine whether adding to your deed is the right move for you, it’s best to review your goals and options with a lawyer.
We work with both landlords and tenants on eviction matters. If you are a landlord trying to evict an uncooperative tenant, or if you are a tenant who believes you are being wrongfully evicted by your landlord, please reach out. We want to help you find, expose, and enforce the truth of your landlord-tenant agreement.
Resolving Title Problems
Title issues are usually discovered when someone tries to sell their real estate. Few problems can be more frustrating, or seem more daunting, than learning that that a problem with your property's title is preventing a sale. Sometimes a lien is on the property that shouldn't be there, sometimes a deceased family member's interest in the property was not properly resolved, and sometimes a quiet title action is required to eliminate a potential claim to the property. Regardless of the nature of the title problem, the real estate attorneys at The Head Law Firm can help you find the right solution.
