Is there a form we can fill out to add my name to the deed.
I agree with Mr. Burgess. However, there are no "approved" self-help forms that I know of. It is worth calling the RMC office in Charleston County (assuming the property lies in Charleston County) to see if they have one you can use. However, I worked in residential real estate closings for 10 years, 5 of which I was an attorney, before leaving the field. I saw many self-drafted documents that contained errors, and it is not always easy to clean up. In fact, the clean-up often costs more money (and headache) than if the person/people had just hired an attorney to draft the document in the first place.
Most attorneys will draft a deed for you for a relatively low fee, which is worth the peace of mind knowing that it was done correctly and your and your husband's interests are protected.
