Does a separated spouse need to be put on a deed when buying manufactured housing?
It's up to whoever is paying for the house to decide who's name goes on the deed. It doesn't matter to the home seller who you want to put on the deed.

I'm look to refiance a non-owner occupied SFR in Wilmington DE. Who has the best rates and terms? Would prefer a no cost loan if possible.?
