Denton, TX asked in Real Estate Law for Rhode Island

Q: If I am still on the deed to the house my ex- husband and I owned in RI but he has passed, do I still own the house.

The deed states tenancy in its entirety with both out names listed. When we divorced he was to remortgage within a year, that was 2008. He did not until 2016. Also he never pushed me to do a quit claim because he said he did not plan to marry again. I am not listed on the new mortgage only the deed.

A: You own half of the real estate and your ex-husband estate owns the other half of the real estate.
