An attorney is the best place to get advice on that. They may advise you to do that to put the public on notice.

I would suggest contacting an attorney and find out the pluses and minuses of either leaving the name or changing it.

I don't believe you need to change your name on the Deed. When you go to sell the house the Title Company will most likely have you sign your name as it is on the Deed and have your husband sign the Deed as well.

You should as it will make things easier in the future. At the same time you may want to have the deed changed to add your husband unless you've signed a pre-nuptial and the house will remain yours. Speak to a local real estate attorney. Getting a deed modified isn't expensive and should ost you more than a couple of hundred dollars at the most.

No, you do not need to change the name on the deed, that is, you do not need to deed the property to yourself in your new, married name.

I would check with a Real Estate attorney to understand what to do in this situation.
