    Default Quit Claim Deeds in New Jersey

    My question involves real estate located in the State of New Jersey.

    Is a quit claim deed the right form to use when adding a spouse to the deed?
    Currently, the deed only lists the wife, but she wants to add him to the deed.
    Does adding one spouse to the deed remove the other, or can they both remain on it?

    A quit claim deed can be used. The signer should deed the property to BOTH names though. The new deed should be to the owner who signes the deed along with the spouse. "Joint Tenants With Right Of Survivorship" should be used if one person dies, the other will have the house wihout having to go through probate.
