Best Answer

It depends upon the state laws when and if the surviving spouse will be entitled to the property. The state probate and property succession laws will apply. If the married couple resided in a community property state she will only need to have the title amended once probate procedures have been completed. In other states, the surviving spouse may not be entitled to the property or may only be entitled to portion of the property, due to the fact that her name was not included in the titling of such. This will hold especially true if the property was bought by the deceased before the marriage.

If there is also a mortgage that will be recorded the attorney cannot add a name to the deed without notifying the bank. The bank would withdraw from the transaction since the added grantee didn't go through the approval process and sign the note and mortgage. If it's a cash deal, a name could be added to the deed with the consent of the original parties to the transfer.
