If your husband signs the home mortgage and is the only name listed on a deed does that make his wife an owner of the house as well just because she is his spouse?

Generally, no. However, you need to consult with an attorney in your area because state laws vary on this topic. There are many factors to consider. If you live in one of the nine community property states you may have an interest in the property IF your husband purchased it after the marriage. Some other states consider it marital property IF the couple gets divorced. If there is no divorce and no community property issue, in some states, such as Massachusetts, your husband is the sole owner of the property. You would acquire an interest only if he died.

If they are not listed on the mortgage, then they have no legal obligation to pay the debt. If payments are not made it is only your credit that will be damaged.

Yes, a spouse can testify but only on a voluntary basis. The spouse can not be compelled to testify.

Not unless your spouse is on the title to the property. If not and your spouse signs, then your spouse will be fully responsible for paying the mortgage.Not unless your spouse is on the title to the property.

It is either. If you are the husband your spouse is your wife. If you are the wife your spouse is your husband.

The owners of any property are the grantees listed on the current deed. The property may be subject to a mortgage if any owner granted a mortgage to a lender.

Yes Watson. But the real question is: can the spouse spouse the home after the reverse mortgage dies live?

The only way to remove your spouse is by refinancing the mortgage. Your attorney may be able to assist you in negotiating with the bank.

A spouse is not added to a mortgage; if the spouse already owns an interest in the property through deed or community property, then the spouse is subject to the mortgage, regardless of whether or not he or she signed it. Note, however, that many mortgages contain "due on sale" clauses which require the mortgage to be refinanced if there is a change in ownership of the property. Contact your bank to see if your loan contains such a clause.

If the mortgage is in your name it would not be affected by the death of your spouse. Mortgage life insurance is coverage that is taken out so that your house would be paid for in the event of your death.

You have the same rights regarding property as you do with your husband. And because you are the spouse, you may want to go to the court and get them to appoint you.

You can refinance without the spouse but you will need their consent to do so. If the spouse is on the title of the home, the answer is "no". If the spouse is on the existing mortgage the answer is "no". If the spouse is not on title you need to indicate on the loan application that you are married, and if you don't is fraud. At the time of closing she/he would have to be present. Inform you spouse of your actions.

At the moment there are very few investors willing to purchase reverse mortgage loans with a non-borrowing spouse due to the AARP / HUD lawsuit. It's advised that both you and your spouse go on the loan together as the reverse mortgage becomes a balloon payment when the last surviving borrower passes.Some helpful reading on this topic here:Reverse Mortgage with Spouse Under 62 Leaves Vulnerabilityhttp://www.allrmc.com/blog/reverse-mortgage-with-spouse-under-62-leaves-vulnerability

I think that the poem is about an abused spouse, but she can't do anything about it because she loved her husband so much.

No, it is not a verb. Spouse is a noun (a husband or wife).

User Avatar

Your husband or wife is your spouse.

Spouse means husband or wife, as in a man and his spouse or a woman and her spouse

You can indeed evict our spouse if they are not listed on lease. All is fair game when not legally stated.

A quit claim deed will be rather inexpensive. However, the spouse can require payment to sign the agreement. You cannot remove them without their agreement and consent.Another PerspectiveA quitclaim deed will transfer the interest of the spouse in the property but will have no effect on the grantor's responsibility to the lender or the mortgage. Generally, the mortgage must be paid and refinanced in order to remove a spouse from any responsibility for paying the mortgage.

The options include: stop paying the mortgage and let the bank repossess the house; pay the entire mortgage yourself; divorce the spouse and move out; divorce the spouse and stay, while your spouse moves out; find out why your spouse refuses to pay half of the mortgage and see if some agreement can be reached; seek cheaper housing; go on an extended backpack tour of Europe; enlist in the army. That's about it.
