A: While the original deed would need to be reviewed in order to see precisely what it says and how the property was held, the general answer to your question should be "NO", it normally would require both of you to sign, since you say X-girlfriend, you should pull the property records and a copy of the new deed in order to see what was filed and what was done and whether your signature was potentially forged as well, all potential possibilities.
