Purchasing a property when married.

If a married person wants to purchase a property solely under their name only, is the spouse legally required to sign a quit claim releasing any rights to the property being purchased?  If so, has this always been required or was there a year this requirement was placed into effect?  Thank you in advance for any information you may have regarding my question.

Yes, this is very typical.  Check with the Title Company on the details as to why this is necessary. Also you may want to ask them when and how you can have your name re-added to title. 

I hope this helps,

Rocky
