I'm looking to purchase a home in my name but my wife has a house in her nameMy wife purchased a house for us when I was overseas and now we have overgrown our first house. She now does not work and I make enough to make the payments. Because she doesn't work (she takes care of our children and has a small, very small business) she wont be able to be on our second home. I make enough to purchase a home by myself but we wanted to put our old house up for rent. Will her owning a home affect my purchase? Also what should with our current home owners insurance? Can it still be considered my wife's current residence even if she doesn't physically live there?March 23 2014 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
