A: Dear Girlfriend Needs Clear Title: Your options are to achieve ex-boyfriend's voluntary transfer, or else you'll be forced to file an action in District Court. If through voluntary means: present a recordable Quitclaim Deed for him to sign before a Notary and then record the Quitclaim and a Real Property Transfer Declaration at your local county recorder. You might have to employ an Attorney to present the appropriate legal demand and the Quitclaim, to said ex-boyfriend. JIM GREER is an attorney licensed to practice in CO and CA and has specialized in real estate transactions for the past 30 years; nothing herein shall be construed as the offering of legal advice insofar as Mr. Greer is not in an attorney-client capacity with the inquiring party.

A: If boyfriend refuses to sign a Quit Claim Deed as discussed by Mr. Greer, then you'll likely need to bring a quiet title action or a partition action in the District Court of your county depending upon the facts in dispute RE ownership.

Good luck!
