Sale Of Home Without Permission
Question: Can my spouse sell our home without my consent?
I am going to be getting a divorce in the near future and my wife wants to sell the house in Stevensville, Michigan, which I have no problem, with but she thinks she can sell the house without my permission or cooperation. Is she right??
Answer: You have asked whether your wife can sell the home without your permission. This depends on how ownership (title) of the home is held. If the home is in her sole name, then under the Women's Property Act, she can sell the home without you. If you own the home together, then it will take the signature of both of you to sell the home. I hope this information helps. There are a number of other factors that could affect the answer to the question and I recommend that you retain an Attorney to help you. Good luck to you and your family.
