transfer of marital home 8 Years ago Karma: 5  
If a property settlement provides that one spouse gets the marital home, and the property settlement is then filed with the register of deeds, does a new deed removing the ex-spouse need to be filed or does the property settlement clear the ex-spouse from title? I guess the question is whether the filing of a property settlement acts as a deed or whether a new deed needs to be recorded to clean the chain of title?

You are right. If the property settlement was recorded, then there is nothing else you need to do, as the ex-spouse is effectively removed from the deed and it made public to the world. I guess filing a new deed couldn't hurt, but what for if filing the property settlement is like the same thing.
