My husband died recently a resident of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We had a house owned as tenants in the entireties. I wish to remove his name from the deed, how can I do this?
In Bucks County, there is generally no need to remove your Husband’s name from the Deed upon his death. In your situation, as tenants by the entirety, when you choose to sell the house, you can simply provide his death certificate and have his name removed when the new deed is filed.
If you still wish to remove his name, the filing fee to remove a deceased’s spouse name from a deed is subject to the Bucks County Recorder of Deeds Fee Schedule. The Office of Recorder of Deeds of Bucks County currently charges a $77.00 fee to remove a deceased spouse.
