Q: How do I get my name removed from the deed of a house I co-own with my sister in North Carolina?
My sister and I inherited my parents’ Chapel Hill home in 2020. My sister, who resides in Chapel Hill, took care of the estate sale, and we agreed she would become sole owner of the house. When she closed the estate, she directed the estate lawyer to include my name as co-owner on the house. My sister now rents out the home, but refuses to provide me with information on the renters, rental income, liability insurance, etc and I feel there is a risk for me to remain on the deed. Can I get a quit claim? Or what would I need to do to get my name off the deed?
A: You can file a quitclaim deed which would transfer any interest you have to your sister. Your sister would not have to agree or even know about this deed. Contact any attorney in NC, and they can assist with this.
