Re: Want to Relinquish Ownership of Home
some form of deed whether it be QC, warranty (several types of warranty deeds generally), or anything else your state might have would be required to transfer your interest to him. That is how it works.
May I, or do I even need to, file a quitclaim to him?
BUT relieving yourself of ownership interest does not relieve you of the financial liability. Even the property settlement between you and the ex does not actually relieve you of that liability to the actual lender. It allows you a basis for an action against your ex but if it came down to it, the lender could sue you or the ex or both in anything dealing with the loan. So, it is generally not advisable to relinquish your interest in a property as long as you have a financial liability for it.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
