    I'm female and for some reason have always assumed that I'd live life on my own. A few years ago I saved up a deposit and I now have a mortgage on a house which as you could probably guess I'm still paying and have many more years left. I met a man a few months ago we have been dating and now he is hinting at moving in with me. I do like him but as with any relationship I can't say for certain how long it will last. Im not that sure on the legal process of having someone live with you if you own a property in terms of at what point they are entitled to half etc. I have been looking this up but it seems quite complicated. Just looking for advice

    Well if you aren't completely sure about it, I would hold off on letting him move in. Especially since you've only been with him for a few months

    A few months isn't long enough for me. If you'd been together a year, then maybe.

    Agree with Tiger. Based on what you say you arent massively into him, it just sounds normal so 2 months would be pretty quick and you dont really know him yet. In addition it takes you to be ready to let someone move in and if you arent sure then you have the hassle of moving them out. I'd get to know him a lot better first till you feel comfy and its what you want , not just him..


    Its a while since I did this, but if he makes payment make it clear its rent and not for the mortgage or use it for food or bills. Do not let him do any building work either. You can draw up an agreement and get him to sign it.
