Signing for each other?

When negotiating through an offer to purchase a home, can a Husband and Wife sign for each other for the ease of convenience if one is not available? 

Only if they have a written authorization dated and witnessed or a power of attorney. 

I would imagine divorce lawyers' business would increase substantially if that practice in contract law was not in place.

  1. Yes, however, their Realtor could have the "missing" spouse sign an "Authority To Sign" form therefore allowing the Realtor to sign on behalf of that missing person.
    This is a great time saver if one party is out of town, or tied up with work!
