When refinancing, adding a joint tenant on the title or preparing a beneficiary deed, there are legal requirements and there are title company requirements. There will be problems with selling the property later unless the deed lists the marital status of the grantee, lists the grantors exactly as they were listed in the prior deed as grantees, and make sure there is an acceptance of right of survivorship when the parties want it. These are just a few things that can cause trouble with selling property later, when people prepare their own deeds without professional advice.
