Can I do a quit claim deed without a lawyer?

Mount Pleasant, SC |

My husband bought a house before we were married with the deed and mortgage in his name only. After we were married, he did a general warranty deed to put the house solely in my name but my name is not on the loan. We are separated and I want to put the house back in his name. Can I do a quit claim deed without a lawyer or do I need to get a lawyer to do a general warranty deed?

Yes.

I would not advise it. But yes you can.

Legally you can draft your own deed and record it, yes. I would suggest you consult with your divorce attorney before going down that road. There may be unforeseen consequences to the conveyance. Good luck to you.
