Joint & Survivorship Deeds
Most people assume that if they are married, and both their names are on the deed of their marital home, that they will automatically become the sole owner when their spouse dies. Unfortunately, under Ohio law, that is not the case! Ohio requires very specific language, even for spouses, indicating that the entire property shall go to the survivor. The good news is, Ebner Family Law can draft and file a new deed for you for only $150.00. I'm even happy to research for you for free whether or not your current deed is effective.
