    Posted: 29/August/2016 at 14:50
Hello I am buying a house with my partner, we are not married and I am putting in over 100K to the deposit. I am wondering about potential issues if we were to separate? Do I need to look into a contract of some kind stating my investment in the property and what would happen if we had to sell if it doesn't work out.
Thanks for any advice

Hi Anna,

Good to see that you have a large deposit, well done!

I work for RAMS Home Loans and I am a home loan manager. if you do separate, we can always have an option to release the loan party. I can explain everything in detail. You can contact me on 0404 704 345.

Thanks.

There are a lot of things you can look at - prenuptial agreement (which of course requires your partners consent) and or even a post-nuptial agreement. You should also look at whose name is going down into the deed in terms of actual legal rights to the house and all that. I do think that you should have a good discussion so that there will be a clear understanding between yourself and your partner should anything happen. Heaven forbid it get messy and ugly with an unexpected surprise if something does happen later on!
Best Regards
