Some couples in Ontario choose to buy a house before getting married, which creates the issue of having to change one person's name on the deed once they get married. First, you must complete the name change process required by Ontario. A name change is expected and therefore easier to do when you get married. Once your name change is completed, the process to change your name on the deed is quite easy, though it does take some preparation and time to complete.
Visit the OntarioService Centre to complete your name change after your wedding. Bring your marriage certificate, current Ontario ID and the Change of Information form. Fill out Section C of the Change of Information form. Your new cards should arrive within four weeks of your application.
Contact the title company you used when you purchased your home. Let them know that your name has changed due to marriage, and you need to change the deed to reflect this change.
Gather the documentation requested by the title company, which often includes your marriage license and updated ID card. They may also ask you to complete an application requesting the change. Submit the documentation as soon as possible.
Include the payment required by the title company. Each title company sets its own fee amounts for services such as changing your name.
