Deed Transfers In Allegheny County
In many divorce cases, the spouses have a mortgage on a marital residence and must decide how to divide what may be the biggest asset in the marital estate.
Will they sell the house and split the proceeds?
Will they continue to live together in the house during the divorce process or will one of them move out?
Will one spouse go on living in the house after the divorce and buy out the other’s interest?
In such cases, it is appropriate to record a deed showing that ownership of the house was transferred into the name of one spouse only. This is commonly referred to as a quitclaim deed.
