Section 1313.29 | Dower right of spouse.


When real property is to be sold as provided in sections 1313.21 to 1313.31, inclusive, of the Revised Code, the husband or wife of the assignor may be made a party, and file an answer in the probate court to have such real property sold free of his or her contingent right of dower and to allow him or her in lieu thereof, out of the proceeds of the sale, such sum of money as the court deems the just and reasonable value of the dower interest therein. Such answer has the force and effect, in all respects, of a deed releasing such contingent dower interest in such real property.
