BlueGrits: "We just finished closing (her 7th of the day) and ran into two problems.

The first one is minor - DW's name was, again, misspelled, but in a different way. *sigh* This was mostly an irritant and inconvenience as I'd asked them to fix this.

The second may or may not be significant so I'll let you folks be the judge. Among our documents was a "warranty deed" which required only my signature. Although I bought the home as a single man, after I married (June, 1999) we've carried both our names on the property."

THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE, but I suspect that you just conveyed 1/2 interest in the house to your wife (for no apparent reason, as far I can infer), but there are one or two other possibilities.

Regards, JAFO
