Dower is a common law right of a wife to use property after the death of the husband. It was abolished in Oklahoma by statute in 1910. See Title 84 of the Oklahoma Statutes, S…ection 214. All Oklahoma Statutes are available online.
Being married to an owner of real estate.
Only by divorce, signing a Quit Deed to release Dower Rights or by the death of the dower.
Dower rights in West Virginia was the right of a woman to inherit the property of the husband if he died first. Dower rights of this nature are no longer used in West Virg…inia. It is more complicated today with children inheriting along with the wife.
I believe dower and courtesy rights were abolished in WV in 1992.
The property industry is one of the most successful throughout the world. Most of the people that have invested in property end up making quite a lot of profits.
Dower rights are the rights a wife has to the property of her deceased husband. They do exist in the state of Georgia.

Yes, investment property is real property.
Depends where you are! The old saying is what are the three factors for the value of real estate? Location, location, and location. If you are in an area where rental housing …is needed, then yes. If not, no. You need to see what the demand is for rental property. In some neighborhoods that are desirable, rentals may be in demand even if the economy overall is not strong. And the second factor is what can you buy the property for that when rented will result in an "NOI" or net operating income that equates to a percentage of the investment that does better than just putting your money in an interest bearing bank account or into some securities. And if you have "money to burn" today in some places you can buy property at prices that are less than what it cost to buy the land, improve the land, and build the place in the first place. Eventually these properties should appreciate in value, but it may take time, you may not have steady renters, and you will have to keep them up to some extent. Then, down the line, you may be able to freshen them up and either sell them or rent them. But the analysis of time value of money is important.
Dower and curtesy abolished (§43-8-57)
The only entity that can "force" someone to give up their rights is a judge. You would need to provide justification to the court for your request.
Individuals can keep the gains they earn.
