LGBT Issues in Real Estate (Dayton Most Metro post)

timthumbA lesbian couple moves out of Dayton and sells their home. Only one of them actually has her name on the title. They are legally married in the state in which they now reside. Since Ohio is a dower state, meaning a spouse has a legal claim on any real estate owned by the other spouse. For heterosexual couples, the spouse also has to sign closing documents. In the wake of the recent Supreme Court ruling on DOMA, how does that affect same-sex couples in Ohio? Is a same-sex spouse entitled to dower rights?

Realtors and clients have to work through new issues presented by the end of DOMA. I talk about some of those issues in Same-Sex Marriages in Real Estate, post DOMA over at Dayton Most Metro.
