Re: Partner's Ex Won't Sign Quit Claim Deed; What Claim(S) Does She Have to Our House
nobody has any right to demand the other party execute a deed.
If your partner wants the ex off the mortgage, your partner needs to refinance the property without the ex but that has nothing to do with a deed (ownership). Your partner can refi the property with just her name as debtor. The ex will have to sign a release of rights subject to the rights of the lender but it will remove the ex from any obligation for the mortgage loan.
the ownership is an entirely separate issue. If you want the ex to relinquish her rights, offer money.
to live with it the way it is or spend a lot of money filing a partition suit.
We are wondering what our options are if she won't sign the quit claim deed.
