Juanita, Home Owner in New York

Husband has mortgage & deed.

Asked by Juanita, New York Sun Apr 17, 2011

been married for over 14yrs & recently bought a house in queens in 2009. i was not working at that time so the mortgage was put in my hubbys name along with the deed. Whats happens if he dies or we were to ever get a divorce? We have 5 kids, i do collect $1600 unemployment since 2009, and i did take out all my 401k 7 pension to pay for the down payment on this house. i also have used all of my tax return money to re model the kitchen, buy furniture ect ect. is it necessary for me to be added to the deed? can he sell the house witout my permission? Just dawned on me, please let me know. thank you
