If a spouse buys property during marriage and puts in their name only. Does other spouse still have rights to it
You can always purchase property by yourself. If you are married, you need your spouse's knowledge and consent to sell due to Florida homestead laws
Before spending $ on an attorney, check "spousal rights in FL".....you'll find out quickly what you already know and what else you need to know. Nothing is ever as simple as it sounds...:-)
Yes you can purchase a home without your husband. If you purchase cash there are no worries. If you obtain a mortgage and the property will be a primary residence for you and not an investment, then he will need to join on the mortgage and other docs at closing.
Yes, but he will have to sign papers at closing.
If your getting a mortgage, he will have to sign at the time of purchase. If your cash he will not need to sign to purchase.
You can certainly purchase a home without your husband. However, he will still have interests in the property. You really need to speak to a professional in more detail to obtain the best answer to this question to make sure you accomplish your goal.
Yes you can. He will be required to sign off on it if you ever decide to sell and may be entitled to half of the proceeds as well. Best to hire a real estate attorney.
Yes, you can. The real question is whether I will be all yours or if you'll have to hare it with him. The answer to that depends upon whether the property will be your primary "Homesteaded" home as a couple or not. Generally speaking, in Florida all spouses have a legal interest in their primary home in which they live. There are exceptions to this rule. Consult a real estate attorney if your wish is to purchase and hold the property in your name only as the 'default' position legally will likely impute an interest to your spouse.
Yes you can. There are other issues to take into consideration; if it is a primary home, an investment property or second home, whether mortgaged or not, if you are a citizen, resident or foreigner, can have different ramification. Best advice is to consult with a real estate attorney and explain your necessities.
Yes, but if you sell the home, your spouse will be entitled to half
Absolutely. But if you sell it after and you are still legally married, he is entitled to half the proceeds.
Yes you can, what town are you looking to purchase in? Do you have a realtor to help you out yet?
Yes you can. You will need him to sign on the re-sale later.
