What is the name of your state? california

When transfering the deed from step-dad to step-son after mother passes away, should both names of the grantors be on the deed or should it be just the servivng grantor listed.? the deed is the main residence of the grantors and is being transfered as a gift. the form which is being filed is a grant deed.

**A: confusing post because of the first sentence.
Did mother already pass away? Who is on title and what is the type of tenancy that title is held?

**A: because of the passing of Mom and the joint tenancy, the property is automatically owned soley by step-dad. The death certificate should be filed
at the recorder's office. Once this is done, a Quit Claim Deed can be used to deed the property to the stepson.
Use an attorney rather than just blank forms picked up at some stationary store.
