You still need to use an attorney to write the proper documents to make them legally binding...and make sure the proper people sign them.
We are not attorneys hence cannot give legal advice..

Thanks for your responses; however, my question is not about my estate plan but about the type of deed needed to transfer the share of my house into my existing living trust. My wife and I owned our home as a tenancy-in-common allowing the survivor to remain in the house for life. I would like to transfer my share into my living trust to avoid probate.

1) In Ocean County, NJ, should I use a quit-claim deed, a grantor deed, or another type of deed?

2) Can I execute this deed independently, or do I need to get my wife's executor involved?

Thanks again.

It is unanimous - talk to an estate attorney.

You need to speak to an estate attorney. As Realtors we can't give legal advice and of course your attorney will need to know all specifics.
