Spouse is not on title or mortgage. Does he need to sign dower doc?Hello!I'm married but buying a house myself. Mortgage as well as the title will be on my name only. I live in Ohio and OH is a dower state. Does my husband need to sign a dower document prior to closing? I don't want to add him to the title right now (we have reason for that and its mutual) but I also don't want him to sign the dower document. Is it possible to close on the house without having him sign it?Thank you very much!!!June 25 2012 - Cleveland00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
