So sorry for your loss. Definitely contact your real estate attorney and they can take care of Quit Claim Deeding the property over to you with the death cert. If you need a recommendation in the Lockport area of a good real estate attorney that does, I would love to help you out with that. I hope all is well with you. ... more

It depends on your specific situation, but the average amount of time is 3 years. You should start now by building your credit back up. You may also want to consider a rent to own or lease option home so that you are already in a home that you would like to purchase a few years down the line when you are able to qualify for a loan. If you would like to further discuss that option, I'd be happy to talk. I can also send you information about repairing your credit or refer you to a few of my in-house lenders, who would be willing to answer your questions.

That's easy. As Mark says, just contact a local attorney or title company.

However, you (and the person already on title) should also check with an accountant as well. There are a lot of implications--more affecting the person already on title--to adding you to it.

And I'm not sure what your goal is, but there may be better ways of accomplishing it than adding your name to the title.

So, while the process is easy, first check to make sure that it's really in the best interests of you and the other person.

Hope that helps.

Hi Sharon,

Vivian is correct about the expiration. I also checked the recorders office home and there are no records of a current sale. If you have any more questions just let me know. ... more
