How can I take someone off title?


This is a question that is frequently asked by property owners. The short is answer is that you cannot take someone off title. The owner that you wish to take off title must consent to relinquishing their ownership interest and they must sign a deed of conveyance in accordance with the law.

The reason why the other owner must consent to their removal is that the first owner legally gave the second owner the same rights and interest held by the first owner; therefore a conveyance occurred and cannot be undone without the second owner’s consent.

There are certain exceptions to the rule, such as divorce or a Petition for Partition. Both instances are lawsuits and must be litigated in court to force an owner’s removal from the deed or to correct the chain of title.
