A: You will need to get your driver license updated to match the name on the deed, your current legal name, both need to be in your current and correct legal name, obviously, the easiest and fastest is to update your license if you can and this should solve your problem. The same would go for any deed if you needed to update the name on a property deed, but before you do that, you would need to speak with a real estate attorney and all parties involved so that you understand the consequences of any such changes on a deed and how to properly do it based on your circumstances.
