Good evening Jennifer,

It is the common practice for the spouse to sign at closing any time you are taking out a mortgage. It does not make him responsible for your mortgage and it doesn't affect his credit. The purpose of him signing is to acknowledge that you are taking out a mortgage; however, there are a couple exceptions to the rules.

First and foremost, you have to work with the right people that know these exceptions. The mortgage company will allow you to close without your spouse signing if the title insurance company will not omit any title insurance coverages due to his not signing. They will require a letter from the title company specifically saying that they will fully cover the property even without his signature. There is only one title company in the Oklahoma City area that I know of that will provide this type of letter.

Feel free to send a message to me privately if you would like more information regarding this or if you have any other questions. It just isn't common to do it this way.

Since rent to own properties may not be listed as such, consider working with an agent of your own. Keep in mind that rent to own can be risky and one could stand to lose a bit of money, therefore do inform yourself well, and consider consulting with an attorney who specializes in real estate beforehand. If you haven't done so yet, visit with any licensed loan officer, see if you can buy outright... ... more

Interesting that you're an agent asking this question? And you answered your own question? This might be more suitable for a Blog topic. Not the Q & A section (which is intended for the public to ask agents questions about buying and selling real estate). ... more

I wish it was as easy as that. Comparable houses depend more on their location and features. What specific house are you considering or selling?
