    Oh, heathere3... I won't tell you it is quick and easy, but the process to do it yourself is painless but does take some time. This experience was over 4 years ago so some things might have changed... I think bumbershoot found that the transfer request is now available on-line.

    You don't need a title attorney because you are not performing a title search... however, if you are closing on another resale the closing company perhaps they could write you a new deed (with fee, of course). But you shouldn't have to pay the $500 title search on a deed your husband already owns.

    The only thing I will caution against is that to be joined in the system for one log-in is that the names MUST MATCH!! In my second resale purchase they forgot my brother's middle initial, there are 4 names on the contract so someone just fat-fingered it on the DVC end. It was correct on the deeds. So that caused a little snafu... but they are particular.

    Good Luck!!

    There is an option on the Dashboard to add a membership to an existing login. Others have used this to be able to access membership that they previously had 2 logins for.

    Would this be the same procedure to change someone from "associate" to "owner"?

    Yes. They have to be on the deed to be an owner.

    Question, when you are creating a new deed, do you basically copy it word-for-word from the one that's already on file, but include the names of the family members you are adding? Or do you list yourself as the "Grantor" (in place of the people you bought it from), then add yourself in again as the "Grantee" along with the new family members? Thanks for any assistance!

    The current names would be the Grantors. You're transferring it from you to you and everyone else.

    Thank you for your reply. I was looking at some of the deeds on the Comptrollers records search and saw that's how most people did there's. I am a complete novice at this, what is the difference between a deed, warranty deed, and quick-claim deed? I will ask "Professor Google" as well! :)

    I'm going to hope this works for me, we have one contract bought direct which Disney used our middle names for, nothing else in our lives is titled this way. Our resale is a different use year, and I tried to get them to title it the same weird way but no luck, so just our initials. Both have a healthy amount of points so hopefully this won't be a huge issue. I do know if we bought a 3rd, I would make sure the use year and the names match!

    For this situation a Quit Claim deed is all you need. If you want to learn more about the various types, there are many sites on the web which explain them, some in more detail than others.

    A quit claim, at least where I live, basically says, "I give any and all of my interest in this property to _____." The problem with this is that it doesn't actually transfer title because it doesn't establish your original interest. It's often misused and ends up clouding the original title. The appropriate use is when someone who might have an undocumented claim disavows that claim, declaring the current owner to have full rights. I would not use a quit claim to transfer title.

    I disagree, for the purposes of DVC it'll work fine. It could end up causing issues if one goes to resell and title insurance is needed but unlikely. As long as DVC will change the title, it'll work. DVC actually uses it themselves at times.
