Sure, your son can sell his half of the house; the objective now is to find someone who is willing to but 1/2 of a house.See question
During the closing when selling the house, can owners request from their attorney how to split the proceeds from the house?

To the contrary, if your name is on the deed, you do have an ownership interest in the house. And I find it hard to believe that the mortgage company will not take payment from you towards the mortgage.See question

A lesson learned, there would have been nothing to prevent you from endeavouring to get a title policy simultaneously with your acquisition of the property, and if the title company at that time advised you that title was uninsurable you may have been inclined to not close, even at the risk of forfeiting your deposit.See question
I co-owned a home with my mother. We are both on the mortgage. She recently passed and i would like to know how i would go about having her name removed from the deed? We are joint tenants.
If the two of you owned the real estate as joint tenants then, at least in New York, it would not be necessary to remove her name from the deed and only if and when you choose to sell would you have to prove that she passed away by producing her death certificate and further corroborating that you are the surviving joint tenant. There is no need at this time to expend money unnecesarily on attorney's fees and recording fees.See question

Property was left to my brother and I equally and I need to sell my half or I will be homeless.
Firstly, I would suggest that you try to sell the real estate to your brother; this would make the transaction easier to consummate. If that doesn't work, pray that you could find a purchaser Who would be willing to purchase a 50% interest in the property. That may be difficult.See question
