The OREA agreement also contains another provision known as spos consent. This provision requires the non-lawful spouse to sign the agreement so that the seller (the joint owner) can sell the property. Here, the non-owner spouse waives all the rights he may have under family law, which are essentially the rights mentioned above (provided the property is a matrimonial home). While this roughly corresponds to a less detailed document that approves the transaction, it does not cover all aspects of the transaction. It does not make it clear to the untitled spouse that he should evacuate the property on or before closing, whether he is to receive any of the proceeds of the sale, or what is sold with the property, or even what the final price is (as it is on the first page and not on the signature page) or what other documents she may have to sign to obtain the sale. The holder cannot impose further cooperation if the non-incumbent spouse refuses for any reason. It is therefore imperative to obtain confirmations and consents in advance to allow the incumbent spouse to apply to the courts for an order requiring the conclusion of the transaction and the cooperation of the unauthorized spouse. At least the non-owner spouse can prove that he or she is responsible for the damage and, furthermore, if the unauthorized spouse signs the sale and sale contract that consents to that date, the purchasers can also obtain a court decision and directly sue the unauthorized spouse (who gave his consent) for damages. Finally, the main problem is to rely exclusively on this provision, namely that after the signing, it is highly unlikely that future amendments will be signed and approved by the untitled spouse, giving the untitled spouse an outcome to his or her initial consent and avoiding liability. Like what.
B an agreement is reached on a specified price and reference date, for which the non-incumbent spouse, by signing, gives his consent in accordance with the purpose of the agreement. A few weeks later, the seller (the titular spouse) accepts an amendment that reduces the price and advances the deadline. The seller (spouse title) does not obtain the consent of the non-owned spouse for this amendment. All of a sudden, the non-owner spouse would get less than expected (if expected) and have to evacuate the property earlier than expected. Each court would sympathize with the non-ownership spouse and, most likely, refuse any injunction to force the conclusion of the sale. Again, it is imperative that ALL AMENDMENTS be signed and approved by the untitled spouse.
