The maiden name will not cause complications in real estate transactions

I bought a house in my name in 2007 after I got married. At that time, I had my PAN card and my bank accounts in my maiden name. So the house was registered under my maiden name. I later changed the name of my PAN card and my bank accounts when I added my husband’s last name to my maiden name. Now the house is registered with my maiden name, while all of my papers and IDs have my husband’s last name appended to my name. Will this anomaly create a complication later if I plan to sell the house or bequeath it? What should I do to avoid this complication in the future?
