My husband and I co-own a home with another couple. Would a deed or title have the exact percentage a house is split?

More details to this question:
In looking our document marked deed, it does not. Is the deed the same as the title? Can the deed or title be changed to reflect the exact percentage each person owns in the house?

The deed is the document which states the title.  The deed can be changed to reflect the number.  Additionally, you likely want the share between you and your spouse to pass by survivorship as between the two of you.

Real estate attorneys can help individuals, families and small business with all property-related legal issues. Buyers and sellers of residential and commercial real estate should work with an attorney to negotiate the terms of agreement; draft and review the contract; review related paperwork (such as loan agreements); clear existing liens on a property; and attend the closing. Lawyers can also assist property owners with addressing zoning/rezoning issues and appealing property tax assessment. Landlords and tenants should work with real estate law firms to draft and review lease agreement, handle eviction proceedings and resolve landlord-tenant disputes.
