While it is not a complex thing to do, we highly suggest checking with a land record attorney before filing the deed at our office. A few simple words such as “Survivorship” or “Life Use” can make a huge difference in the transfer of property. All paperwork in the State of Connecticut requires an OP-236 Conveyance form.
I am not an Attorney so I don’t want to speak on the specifics if someone passes away, if there could be a gift tax, or who has rights to live in the home, but if you think you may need to file a Quit Claim in the near future, please don’t hesitate to reach out to a local attorney to know your rights.
