    Adding wife to deed?

    What is the name of your state? Pennsylvania

    What form should I use to add my wife's name to the deed of the house that I purchased before we were married? Quit Claim? Warranty, etc?

    Can I just use a "fill in the blank" deed form and have it registered myself?

    I'm in Chester County PA if that matters.

    Thanks in Advance!

    **A: see a real estate attorney as there are issues to verify Ie. tenancy, mortgage due on sale clause, tax consequences, will/trust, any current or pending judgements against wife etc.

    We've been married for almost 11 years so I'm sure there are no hidden issues.

    **A: ok, I am sure the attorney that you see will feel better about that.
