My mother passed away and her husband placed me on the deed of the house. How hard is it for him to remove me?

You cannot be "removed." A new deed would have to be done conveying the property from you and any other owners to whoever else owns the property. Deeds are not all that expensive but what the heck is going on here. What did your mother own? Why did the husband just deed land to you? Has an estate been probated? Did your mother have a will? Did she include her husband in the distribution of her estate and if not why not (was there a pre-nuptial agreement)? There is a lot more going on than you relate. I suggest that you speak to a probate attorney and see if you need something more than just a deed.
