Getanswers answerstotoyour legal questions about realreal estate ...... Get legal questions about estate Email your questions to and we’ll get them answered

the question: I own land that I purchased prior to marrying my wife. The Realtor is telling me that my wife needs to sign the contract and will need to sign the deed for closing. Are they right?

the answer: Yes, they are correct. In North Carolina, by statute, a spouse has certain rights they acquire by marriage. Your wife would be conveying those rights she acquired by the marriage. This answer may change due to other factors like a Prenuptial Agreement, Free Trader Agreement or Separation Agreement. That is why it is important to have your Agent contact a Real Estate Attorney to determine the proper course to be taken.

Phillip C. Price This is an advertisment and should not be considered a legal opinion between an attorney and a client. Call an attorney.
