Re: How do you remove a deceased spouse's name of a title deed.

Before I can answer that, I need to know where the property is located. Second, I need to know if the deceased ever had a will probated.

Assuming that this is Texas property and the deceased had no will, then I would likely recommend heirship affidavits to be filed in the county records. That should give notice of title to the heirs of the deceased. The heirs could then sign a family settlement agreement and deed the property to whomever they wished.
