ToLawyer, Expert

I understand, but there is a specific way of holding title, even if you have title together - You need to know if it is joint tenancy (with a right of survivorship) or tenancy in common (% ownership). This information can be found in your property transfer documents.

You can remove your mom's name on title if it is a joint tenancy via a survivorship application. However, if it is tenancy in common, her portion of the ownership will flow through the Will.
