What is the name of your state? Hawaii
We would like to add our son's name to the deed to our home. He is currently living in that home; we have purchased another home for ourselves in another state.
We recently finished paying off the mortgage. We couldn't find our copy of the deed, but the bank provided us with a 4-page copy of the deed, complete with signatures.
1. What is the procedure for adding our son's name to the deed? Is it a simple recording matter, or a complex one?
2. How much should we expect to pay for an attorney to do this for us?
3. Should we hire someone in our current state, or someone in Hawaii? (We're assuming Hawaii, since that's where the property is.) If our current state is fine, would our local bank be able to recommend an attorney in the area? We're new here, and don't know too many people yet.
Thank you!What is the name of your state?
