Spouse needs to sign the deed of trust, Truth in Lending and Right to Cancel unless you have some type of free trader agreement in place. As long as husband does not sign the promissory note, he is not personally liable for the loan but he is indicating that he is giving up any interest he may have in the property as to the lender.

Yes, NC law requires spouses to sign off on all mortgage transactions even if they won't sign onto the loan itself. They must sign the deed of trust.
