Q: I’m married, does my spouse need to come to closing?

Your spouse will need to be present if your spouse is on the deed for the subject property.

If your spouse does not hold title but resides in the subject property, your spouse must come to closing.

If your spouse does not hold title and does not reside in the property (i.e. investment property), your spouse is not required for closing.
