I bought a piece of land in Texas. I purchased it in my personal name, not my business. I am married, but my wife’s name was not included in the transaction and she is not on the deed. I closed through a title company. It is now 45 days later and I am selling the property, through the same title company. But, the title company refuses to close the deal without my wife’s signature on the selling deed. Texas is a community property state and they insist she must confirm her release of any future claim to the property.
There are no issues with my marriage. I simply want to keep my wife completely out of my transactions in general, for several unrelated reasons, (tax, liability, etc).
Has anyone ever run into this in Texas? Is this indeed a requirement?
This is holding up my deal, so thank you in advance for a fast advice.
