Help the community by answering this question:


Fee simple is an estate under which the owner is entitled to unrestricted powers to dispose of the property, and which can be left by will or inherited. It means ownership.

Joint ownership is property owned by more than one person or entity.

A deed is a conveying instrument given to pass fee title to property upon sale.

I agree with the previous answer, seek the advice of a real estate attorney.

Crime & Safety? Interesting.

So, fee simple has nothing to do with your problem, so let's put that one aside.

Your husband can't "get your name off your deed," only you can transfer your interest in the property. Since you seem to have some dispute going on, it would really be worth your while to consult with a local professional to help you either resolve it or defend your legal rights.

All the best,
