Question asked on Apr 08th, 2016
Adding someone as a co-owner of property is simple — just execute a quit-claim or grant, bargain, and sale deed from you to you AND him. As to whether you want to do so, that is another question — it would appear to constitute a “transmutation” of the property — essentially a gift of half the equity, which may not be the result you will want to be true now, or sometime in the future. See https://www.willicklawgroup.com/property-rights-and-division/. If you are at all unsure of what you are doing or why, seek out the advice of a family law specialist before signing anything.
