Should You Have Your Children on Title of your Home with You?

Posted by James Burns | Mar 31, 2021 | 0 Comments

If I add my child's name to the title of my house🏠, wouldn't that be the easiest way to avoid probate and transfer it quickly after I die?

Short answer: NO!

Here's the scoop: You're running a lot of risk when you do this. Take these into consideration:

❌ Want to sell the house? You'll have to ask your co-owner (your child) first.

❌ What if your child dies? You could be co-owning a house with your son-in-law or daughter-in-law because of being in a community property state.

❌ Want Medicaid? “Gifting” your house may push yourself into the “ineligible” slot.

❌ What about your other kids? This could easily start a family feud.
