My oldest son and his wife along with myself bought a house together and it ended up not working out. They are getting a divorce. They do not want to sign the quitclaim deed. He has called the mortgage company and told them that he wants nothing to do with the house anymore, and he is not going to sign the form and that he wants the house to go into foreclosure. I am taking him and his wife to court over the house. They have not helped me with any of the bills or anything since they have moved out. What do you think will end up happening once the judge hears what my oldest son has said? My youngest son works at Ford and is going to help me keep my home.
There are several real estate documents that may be required when buying or selling property, including a purchase agreement, property disclosure and deed.
A quitclaim deed is used to transfer ownership without a sale taking place or verifying ownership. It's often used to transfer property between family members.
