Two years have passed since the United States Supreme Court passed down a decision in Obergefell v. Another thing that changed for Miller and Long is the automatic inclusion of Long as the inheritor of their future home in Orlando. That's a requirement under the Statute of Frauds and that statute is universal in the U. Upon the death of a spouse, the surviving spouse owns the entire property by operation of law outside of probate.
The mortgage is secured by the property.
How would it be stated in the deed if two gay men get married?
Due to the economy, the house is now worth ten thousand dollars less than when it was purchased. Probably even "person A and person B, married men, as community property". No matter how specific the language, it does not guarantee a tenancy by the entirety because existing law refers to property owned by "husband and wife" rather than "a married couple" or "spouses". While the language of each of these creditor protection statutes is currently gender-specific, the statutes as they are currently written would almost certainly not withstand a challenge under the holding in Obergefell. However, if you are an unmarried couple, both people need to be veterans. The property can be dissolved and the proceeds distributed among the owners.
