Q: Two people purchased a house, and one party wants to deed over their interest in the property to the other
What document should they use?
A: Contact an attorney to prepare a warranty deed. It should cost about $100 plus filing fee.
A: Title to real property can be a tricky thing. The answer to your question may be very simple (as provided by the other attorney), or it can be complex depending on the circumstances. For example, there are covenants associated with the different types of deeds and it would be unfortunate to use the wrong type of deed and then get sued for that later on. When you go to meet with an attorney make sure you disclose the circumstances surrounding the acquisition and the desire to convey the property so that he or she can properly advise you.
