Joint Property or not?

Asked by Zanne, Utah Tue Feb 3, 2009

My husband's father might leave him two properties in my husband's name only. If my husband and I were to divorce, would I have any portion of that property or would it be his only even though it was left to my husband while we were married?

If you are not titled to the property then you technically do not own or have rights to the property. With divorce all possessions are negotiated or fought after. I would recommend that you speak with an attorney to discuss specifics.

You have only mentioned divorce and have not mentioned death. Not placing the property in both names with the right of survivorship can hurt you in the event that your husband passes away so I would also discuss that with an attorney.

Lynn is correct, check with an attorney. Hypothetically, if a property is deeded to a person, they are the only owners of that property. Divorce decrees and wills could change the whole story, however.

Contact real estate attorney review all particulars what is considered your property. Depends on how properties were willed if within standards of state laws. If you have an agreement with your husband who is responsible for all taxes maintaining property and much much more.
