Legal Question in Real Estate Law in North Carolina

I live in NC and have recently entered into a realestate agreement to sell a piece of land. My wife has changed her mind about wanting to sell the property and has said she will not sign anything to sell the land. She is not on the Deed. Can she keep me from selling the property?

Yes, if you are married, no title company will insure/certify the title when a spouse doesn't sign off due to old family law/inheritance law issues this creates.

So technically the answer is she can't keep you from selling it but by refusing to sign, most people will not buy it since the title insurance company will require her signature.
