As you can see just because an individual is the only person on title does not mean the home is solely theirs to do with as they please, so while it may seem archaic to ask a person for their marital status when putting together a contract or preparing for a closing, having this information is imperative to ensuring all the necessary documentation is prepared correctly and there are no delays to closing. As always, we urge you to reach out your local real estate attorney should you have any questions!
