Can someone sell a house if your name is on the deed?
Herein, can I be evicted if my name is on the deed?
Even if your spouse's name isn't on the mortgage, if it appears on the deed to your home, he has a distinct ownership interest and you can't evict him. If he's just on the mortgage, he has a debt obligation but not necessarily an ownership interest.
One may also ask, can 2 people be on a deed? Multiple Owners You can take title with one or more parties when you purchase real estate, or you can add another person's name to your individually owned property. For example, if you and your husband purchase a new home together, your different names are both listed as owners on the deed.
Similarly one may ask, what happens if your name is on the deed but not the mortgage?
If your name was on the deed before the your spouse signed the mortgage, then normally the bank can only foreclose on your spouse's share of the home. Generally, your name is on the deed to the home, then you you own an interest in it. The bank cannot foreclose since you did not transfer your interest to the bank.
What does it mean if your name is on the title of a house?
For real estate purposes, title refers to ownership of the property, meaning that you have the rights to use that property. It may be a partial interest in the property or it may be the full. However, because you have title, you can access the land and potentially modify it as you see fit.
