It's not actually a "deed restriction," I don't think. What you are asking to do isn't that simple. You can't add somebody and then just remove them. In other words, removing them will take the agreement of the other party, you can't just "kick them off" of the deed.

Call a local title company, they can help you with this. It will cost you about $150 to add somebody to the deed in Ohio.

This is really a legal question. I would suggest you contact an attorney. Real Estate Professionals are not lawyers and are not permitted to answer legal questions.

This is a deed restriction, ask your title company to complete this for you.
