Welcome Eddie! Absolutely! If your divorce is not FINAL by the close of escrow, the title insurance company may request that your spouse sign a "Spousal-Deed". Your divorce attorney may request that the "Spousal-Deed" be signed as part of your divorce. Ask your attorney if you can "Bi-Furcate". California allows you to finalize your Legal Divorce, then take more time settling finances and other issues. Nevada has outstanding Down Payment Grants for residents! 3%, 4% and 5% as well as Mortgage Interest Tax Credits! Feel free to reach out to me. Formerly of California as well!

Will your divorce be final before your move/purchase? Nevada is a community property state, however you can purchase with the appropriate legal documents; first point of reference would be to consult with a lender to look at the total picture/income/work/debt etc. Give me a call and I will connect you with a top notch lender here in Nevada and it is always wise to consult with your attorney as well.

You will need to get divorce first if you are getting a FHA loan. If conventional you will want him to sign a quit claim saying he has nothing to do with it. Call me personally if you have any other questions.

Sure. It will just come down to your income and your debt. You will need to be formally divorced before closing or your spouse will have to sign a deed relinquishing their interest since Nevada is a community property state. The main challenge with relocating is usually income. I am happy to talk you through it if you would like and answer any questions you have. Call me at 702-328-3043. Brad

You can purchase a home in Nevada as long as your spouse is willing to sign a quit claim deed but that also highly recommend that you consult an attorney if you have any other questions my name is Will my number is 702 674 6257 looking forward to hearing from you

Hi. The answer is yes. You can buy in Las Vegas without your spouse but you have to know that Nevada is a community property state so your spouse will have to sign a quitclaim deed. A quitclaim deed is a legal instrument which is used to transfer interest in real property. The entity transferring its interest is called the grantor, and when the quitclaim deed is properly completed and executed, it transfers any interest the grantor has in the property to a recipient, called the grantee. I f you apply for a FHA loan (loan insured by the government, the lender will have to take your spouse credit and debt in consideration, and if you apply for a Conventional loan (private loan), the lender will only take your credit and debt in consideration. I hope this answer will help you. Best regards. Jacques.

This is a fabulous question. The best answer would come from a lender. They would be able to look at your income vs expenses and the big picture to see if your finances would be able to handle two houses until the divorce is settled. I have several lenders that I can refer you to, if you don't already have one. You can always reach out to me and I would be happy to talk to you and answer any other questions you may have about this or anything else!
