Reply To: Spouse name on deeds


Dear Jools, If you were married in community of goods the property belongs 50% to you and 50% to your ex husband althoug your name is not mentioned in the purchase deed. If you were married in separation of goods, the property belongs to your ex. Important information is that you are divorced. You and your husband signed an agreement/deed with the division of your joint belonings. Who obtained the Spanish property when you divorced? Firstly, the person who obtained the property must register the deed of division via a Spanish notarial deed at the Land Registry. After that the property can be sold.
