That depends on the laws of your state.
I think it would still class as the marital home and therefore a shared asset but I don’t know…. I’m sure there are some lawyer bees who would know more though.
I am in the UK so if anyone knows the laws in the UK that would be more helpful but otherwise a general view would be good too…
Depends on the laws where you live. In Ontario, we have what’s called matrimonial home, each spouse has an equal right to the property no matter whose name is actually on the title/deed.
It depends on the laws in the UK (which I don’t know).
If you are already married, why wouldn’t you just put both of your names on the house??
I dunno, looks like he wants his sister to be the solicitor which I am not entirely too happy with as I don’t really like her but he is of the opinion that it’s good to give family business when you can….
@isabeexx: I may not be 100% correct but I believe you also have the same law (as we tend to follow UK law in Canada) in where even if your name is not on the deed you are still the owner. Although, I’m not really sure why you would not be put on the deed.
The topic ‘whose name should be on deed and mortgage’ is closed to new replies.
