The World of Wisconsin Deeds

Working up a deed today, I came across a new situation. A client has come to be after the death of her husband. The deed to their home was in both names....she thought. If so, we can complete the HT-110 to remove his name, placing it in her name only. To do this we need the original deed. I went onto Tapestry and discovered that the deed for the LOT was listed, but it did not reflect the home later built on the lot. One quick email to the Dane County Register of Deeds confirmed that we can use that original deed, nothing would have been created upon building the home. Once again, the HT-110 will help keep a widow's home out of probate.
