Selling a conjugal property undergoes the usual process with the absolute deed of sale to be signed by the spouses (or the conjugal owners). The only snag is when the couple is already estranged and not in good terms. What if one of the spouses wouldn't sign the deed of sale, what can the other party do? That situation is very common for separated couples, according to one real estate broker. In extreme cases, the spouse who wants to sell would file a motion in court to force the other spouse in agreeing to the sale of the property for equal sharing between them.
