Name left off Warranty Deed


#1

What do you do when your name is left off of the Warranty Deed by the closing attorney, but is included other loan documents (Deed of Trust). This is 20 years later. Who is responsible to make the correction? How will this be considered for equitable distribution?

I’m not sure how you would go about correcting that deed, that sort of question is outside of the scope of this forum.

That being said, simply because your name is not on the deed, that does not mean that you don’t have any interest in the home. All of the equity built in the house during the marriage is considered marital, and you would be entitled to your portion through equitable distribution.
