my friend was in a gay partnership for 16 years with the same woman. She put her partner's name on the deed as well as the loan for the third house. They have split up. The partner has not been paying for her "half" of the payments, yet she refuses to sign a quit claim deed so my friend can get her off the house deed and re-fi the house souly in her name. what re-course does she have in this situation? how can she get this woman's name off her house and out of her life??? Also this partner came to the house and basically cleaned my friend out. took all furniture, washer and dryer, my friend's personal collection of antiques, and such. The police said that this was "too bad" because the partner still had keys to the house at this moment. My friend has since changed the locks.
