I got the house in my divorce from my first husband in 2008. He signed a quit claim deed removing himself from the property. My property information with the county I live in shows that I am the owner of the property, although they have me listed under my old name, and as the taxpayer under my new name (I got remarried).
The city of Minneapolis shows me as the tax payer, under my current legal name, but my ex-husband as the owner of the property & as the homesteader.
How do I get the information corrected with both the city & the county?... more
Unless your laws are different up there, there is an old saying in real estate. It takes one to list and two to sell. Meaning one party can sign to list it and both need to sign to sell it. Both signatures are best but one is all we need here to list it. With Docusign electronic signature software a buyer or seller can be anywhere and sign documents on their cell phone so I use it all the time. Tell your agent to get up-to-date and get Docusign.... more
As long as you are legally married, he will have 50% ownership in any property you purchase. The laws are very clear on this in the State of Minnesota. However, if you are on good terms and he would agree to Quit Claim the deed to you upon the finalization of the divorce, it could work. This is more of a legal question, so I would consult your divorce attorney before entering into any purchase agreement. However, if you have any additional real estate questions, please feel free to contact me direct. Deb J at 612.701.8771. Good luck.... more

Thank you for your question about whether or not you should walk away from a deal that has had a lot of problems.
Please be advised that purchasing a foreclosure property comes with a lot of strings attached before it closes. The problems you are experiencing are common.
Do not get to attached to a deal because that is how you get taken advantage of. You must always be willing to walk away.... more
Your local realtor would be able to pull that information for you. Also, it sounds like you are an unrepresented buyer. Since the owner has already determined the amount of commission when they signed the contract with the real estate agent/broker selling the home on their behalf, you could be represented by your own real estate agent/broker by entering into an Exclusive Buyer's Agency Agreement. They would be paid after closing according to the terms set forth and published on the local MLS. This usually gives half of the commission to the buyer's agent and half to the listing/seller's agent. If you choose to be unrepresented, the listing/seller's agent/broker will take all of the commission. In other words, being represented does not change the price you will pay; it only means that you will not have the benefit of a professional protecting your interests in the transaction.... more
