Going to chime in ** Vivian Akins is correct for NC (see her response) for cash purchases however, it's up to Lender (in case of a mortgage purchase) if spouse is to be a party in qualifying for loan or not. If party to the mortgage, they will also need to be on contract as a buyer. And also many times, the spouse will have paperwork to sign at closing to be on the deed, even if they are not one of the purchasing parties...so plan for them to be at closing also!

Not necessarily. Your spouse can be on the deed but not as the purchaser. In NC though, if you are married, one person can buy but both have to sign to sell.
