Spouse’s consent to selling / purchasing real estate
Maybe you are willing to sell any property purchased during the marriage? In such case, obtaining your spouse’s consent to selling/purchasing real estate is an obligatory procedure.
We would like to emphasize that such consent is required both for selling and for purchasing the realty, whereas you spend money acquired during the marriage and considered to be joint property of spouses.
The spouse is required to give his/her consent when selling (purchasing) movable or immovable property, e.g. the apartment, house, land plot, vehicle, etc.
Please note that if you are divorced at the moment, and the property has been purchased during the marriage, you will still need your ex-spouse’s consent for selling.
If you inherited the property or it was a gift, in such a case no spouse’s consent is required for property alienation, whereas it is your own private property.
The spouse’s consent is executed as a respective statement. The statement shall include:
- Full name of the spouse for whom the consent for selling (purchasing) is granted;
- Property to be purchased (sold);
- Type of agreement;
- Details of the marriage certificate.
Do I need my spouse's consent for buying a real estate?

How long is the spouse's consent for the sale of real estate valid?
On the one hand, there are no legislative restrictions on the validity period of consent for the sale of real estate, however on the other hand, in actual practice, the notary recommends drawing up a consent for each transaction individually and as far as timing is concerned – as close to the date of the transaction as possible. This protects the spouses’ interests.
How to consummate a spouse's consent for the sale of real estate?
The consent is drawn up at the notary, he/she certifies the authenticity of the data and signatures. The spouse draws up a statement in which he/she consents to the sale of the property. Notarization makes the consent valid.
