Now if it's investment property and not your homestead, then she does not automatically own 1/2. It sounds like you need to seek legal representation. It will be well worth the cost! Good luck.
This question was duplicated and I'm going to close the other thread but I wanted to let you all know that additional answers can be found at the link below.
Customer Service Representative
An agent who does this is stupid. All parties on the deed should be in agreement to the listing, as they will need to be in agreement on the sale.
Don't worry about it. If YOU are really the only person on the deed, then there is no valid listing agreement. Go seek an agent that you feel comfortable with and move forward.
YOU CAN'T SELL SOMETHING YOU DON'T OWN. PERIOD.
I have often joked about this in the past, that I was going to do a sign that said "for sale by neighbor" instead of "for sale by owner" lol............because NOBODY can sell a house BUT the owner! I am going to do this one day, put a 'for sale by neighbor sign' in the yard of the for sale by owner, WITH the neighbors phone number on it, put up a video cam and see what happens ;-) lol!!
AGAIN, let me repeat, if YOU DON'T OWN IT, YOU CAN'T SELL IT... so, let the incompetent agent list it, let the ex do what they will, ,when it all comes down to the bottom line, if, as you say - you are truly the only one on the deed - nothing will happen. Now, you must make sure you are REALLY the only one on the deed, and not the mtg - like most people get confused on.
If in doubt, consult a great agent in your area and they can find out.
Good luck! and please, lol, let us know "the rest of the story"!!
In most circumstances, only the registered owner may list or sell the home. As long as you have not given your wife power of attorney to sell on your behalf or a court has not ordered the sale of your home.
Check with an attorney though - this is too important!
