Real Estate

Residential and Investment Property Distribution

Division of real estate is one of the largest and most complex issues that arises in divorce. The equitable distribution of real estate assets such as marital homes, vacation homes, investment property and commercial property, as well as possible exemptions, is determined by the:

  • Date of purchase
  • Date of marriage
  • Date of separation
  • Amount of the down payment
  • The source of payment
  • Value of the real estate at the different stages (purchase, date of marriage, and date of separation)
  • Ability to trade off other assets so the house doesn’t have to be sold or the ability of one party to buy out the other’s interest

Who Gets the House?

However, if the couple has no children, neither can legally request a departure of the other spouse except in the event of domestic violence or if one spouse locks the other out, granting the other the right to notify police.
