The first way a married couple can own a house would be through community
ownership which means if a spouse passed they are able to give a property to
someone else beside their spouse such as their children or parents. Another way
that a married couple would own a real estate property would be through
community ownership with right of survivorship; this means that if a spouse that
passed the remaining spouse would inherit the whole property.
Through a community ownership with no right of survivorship the remaining
spouse can give that property to anyone they would like and the exceptions are if
there is the right of survivorship through a community ownership.
Work out a prenuptial agreement with your spouse which means that a spouse
owns a property individually.Another way is
post-nuptial agreement which is a
contract created by spouses after entering into a marriage that outlines the
ownership of financial assets in the event of a divorce. The contract can also set
out the responsibilities surrounding any children or other obligations for the
duration of the marriage.
