Not sure if the rules are different in the USA, but in Canada most people submit a copy of their marriage license to the bank to indicate that their last name has changed, but they do not change the name on the deed, as it requires an amending agreement and is quite costly.

@[email protected]:  I would doubt that you need to refi to change YOUR name, but to ADD a name yes. I’d just contact my lender to ask.


Why does your H not want to be on the title?  Would you will your house to him should something happen to you?

I’m curious about this as well.. I’m in the same situation (also living in NJ).  Can’t be of any help but would love to hear what others have to say or have experienced.
