I reside in the state of Nevada, and am curious what the procedure is for changing my last name on my house deed. The house is in my name only and was purchased prior to my marriage, therefore the deed is still in my maiden name. Do I have to change my name, or can I leave it the way it is? If it is legal to leave my maiden name on the deed, are there drawbacks to my husband/family in the event of my death? Will this name change need to take place in order to sell the property?
