Just Looking, Bellbrook, OH
I signed a quit claim deed in 1994 when my ex-husband and I were divorced and I ended up moving out of our house we had bought together. I had to sign the quit claim deed in order to meet the financial obligation of lower expenses in able to buy a little house of my own after our divorce. I signed that paper at my closing of my house....or so it seemed! This past year a title company called me and said the quit claim deed was not signed officially (?) and that I needed to come in to do that; the house that my ex and I had lived in was pending a sale (my ex did not own it or live in it and as a matter of fact he had sold it in about 1995). I remember thinking.....hmmm.....does that mean I still own the house???! The title agent on the phone actually made a reference to infer that it could be misconstrued as such! also, I believe that means my ex husband may have SOLD that house with just his signature and my "quit claim deed" signature from my closing papers which may have just been paper to satisfy the purchase of my house alone, not a quit claim for the other house we had purchased together that I had moved out of.. just giving some examples here of why perhaps it happens. Seperation....and D I V O R C E and unfortunately death are reasons I see...
