Chances are the Quitclaim does not or did not relieve you of the joint debt for the home. When you contact the mortgage company ask them if you are currently responsible for the debt. If so then you now have a claim to the home, but it needs to be done through the court. Contact your divorce attorney for assistance.

Your Ex should have been compelled to refinance the home so that you have no further obligations on the note. Most likely that did not happen. You will probably find out that you are still jointly responsible for the mortgage but you have signed a quitclaim against your ownership securing the note.

Call the bank that holds the loan, and fax them proof. Your bank will have pamphlets on how to file disputes for each credit agency via mail. You can also do it online. I highly recommend you use the mail option, since it's easier for them to click a button online and say it's a valid listing.

I refuse to sign a quit claim deed until he refinances.  Period.  The quit claim takes away your rights to the home but does not relieve you of any financial obligation.
