How do I change a name, remove a name or add a name to my deed?

By recording a new document.  Anyone wishing to convey their interest in property would do so by creating/completing/recording an appropriate document.  That being said, the most common documents used are Warranty Deed and Quit Claim Deed.  It is strongly recommended you consult with an attorney who will be able to assure interest is conveyed exactly as intended and assist in drafting the new document. Templates/forms for commonly used documents may be found online, at office supply stores or you may wish to self-draft a document. Once the document is complete and signature(s) are notarized, the original document with original signatures will be presented to our office for recording.
