My question involves real estate located in the State of: California.
Hello, this is a question i'm asking for someone else. I gave her my answer but just want to make sure. My sister is dying. She has willed everything to her roommate. The roommate would like to be added on her grant deed now - before my sister dies. But my sister has a $40K mortgage outstanding. Can the roommate be added on to a deed now - before my sister dies? I told her that the bank owns the deed, and that the property would have to be paid off before my sister could add her to the deed. Is this correct? Thank you very much, Mel.
