If the parent dies with a will, the estate must clear probate, first, which could take time and money. After the Probate is cleared then a Quit Claim Deed from the personal representative of the estate to the rightful benificary of the will. can be filed in the County Clerks office, the house is then transferred. However, the benificary will be responsible for the increased value of the home. If the parent died with a Revocable Livng Trust and the house was properly titled in the trust's name , the the successor trustee would transfer the house via a Quit Claim Deed. This is of minimum costs (the preperation of the deed and the County recorder's filing fee.) And with the Trust there is no monies for the benificaries to pay for the property value increase.

How do you change the name on a deed from a deceased parent if there is no will but your name is on deed?

If your name is on the deed as a "joint tenant" grantee, then the surviving joint tenant(s) automatically become the owners and no probate is involved. This is a common method for bypassing the cost and complexity of probate. If your name is on the deed as a "tenant in common" grantee with the deceased, then their partial ownership must be probated to determine who will receive ownership of it (i.e., according to the state laws of intestate succession). The estate administrator would issue a new deed naming the heirs as tenant(s) in common with other existing tenants in common.
