I used to think we could do everything 50/50 at every step of our lives, but turns out it's not very realistic when life throws things at...

That's really terrible, when false.
29/11/2019 - 07:27
Thank you! That all makes sense. Seems that joint tenancy is the way forward. It's a relief to know that everything would be taken into...

Thanks - it's good to hear from others about this. I'm not "worried"; I'm one of those weirdos that needs to know every possible scenario...

Already have - his advice is in my first post. Just keen to hear from others. :)

Hopefully we will be together a lifetime! Though I'm sure everyone starts off thinking that way. Thanks for your advice. :)
28/11/2019 - 11:56
Thanks for your insights! Really helpful questions to think about. I used to be in a role where I could be sued/bankrupt as a sole trader,...

Thanks for your advice, I appreciate it. Up until now, our finances have been separate. He has been paying most of the living expenses...

Good idea, we were thinking of doing this. Although I understand that it's not useful anymore since we've been defacto for more than 2yrs...

Oh, dying at the same time - that's a difficult situation. Can I ask how it turned out? Was everyone fine with the will that was executed,...
28/11/2019 - 11:40
Ah OK, I see. So in that case: Scenario: Tenants in common 60/40. If we split up, then... courts will approve or reject that split? Based...

You're absolutely right! We have an offset account as part of our package... so we can just park the gift in there.
28/11/2019 - 11:27
Thanks zeggie, that makes perfect sense. I suppose we are in a simpler situation (defacto + first home buyers) so perhaps joint tenancy is...
28/11/2019 - 11:25
Ouch. That is definitely not ideal! In a way, my partner does have savings I guess - he just uses them all up every month to support the...
28/11/2019 - 11:22
All good points, thank you. It's true he doesn't have savings, but he's been covering 60-70% of our living expenses for the last two years...

50-50 tenants in common, or joint tenancy?
28/11/2019 - 11:09
Hi Newplace, thanks for your thoughts. Super helpful. When you say 'gives you much more flexibility', can you explain how so? ie when...
28/11/2019 - 11:07
Oops - you're right. I read it as interstate. Thanks for the heads up.
28/11/2019 - 11:05
Hi jacross, our solicitor asked which option we wanted (via email), then immediately emailed again to say it wouldn't matter because we're...
28/11/2019 - 11:04
We found it useful to go with a broker who could see all the options for us. Although we did do our own research for online-only lenders...
27/11/2019 - 22:28
Thanks for your thoughts! Yes it seems like joint tenancy is the way to go. We were worried about splitting up in future, but if it's up to...
27/11/2019 - 22:23
Oops - I've edited my post to say we have a 20% deposit, not 10%. So thankfully we will be avoiding LMI! (I was thinking 10% as that's what...
27/11/2019 - 22:21
Why would you suggest tenants in common? Just wondering. We've been in a defacto relationship for a long time, so from what I understand...
27/11/2019 - 22:16
Thanks zeggie, we may indeed do that.
27/11/2019 - 21:59
Yikes. Thanks for the explanation.
