Legal Answers
94 Questions Answered

Q. I bought a house before being and now want to refinance after I’m married. I am not adding my husband to the title.
A: Ohio has an archaic "dower" law that gives every spouse a 1/3 interest in the property. He has to sign his dower interest paperwork, and when you sell the house, he would then also have to release his dower. This interest is a statutory right and exists outside of you holding title. It does not "spring" when you pass away, but is an immediate 1/3 interest in the property. See O.R.C. 2103.
Q. What is the easiest , quickest , least expensive way to do a quickdeed property transfer ?
A: There are some mandatory state fees (recordation, conveyance fee), and many attorneys charge about $250 or less to draft a deed. It also depends on the nature of the deed. E.g., quit claim or general warranty.
Q. Ohio - 3 siblings own 30 acres in common. Do we all three own the house on it also or just the 1 living in it?
A: If the house is on the 30 acres which is owned in common, then everyone also owns the house. Unless there has been a partition action, the entirety of the property is owned in common. The tenant may have typical tenant/resident rights to the house.
