Today the trend is not so likely that people get married, then buy a house. Things seem to be all out of order to me. Not that today's way is bad, just not what I grew up knowing what was the order of events. Young people single and are buying homes together.
You will need to understand what choices you have as far as the way the title to the home reads. If single you may want to take the title as joint tenants with right of survivorship. That means if one of you passes away then the property goes tto the surviving person and not their heirs.
Or, if you just take the title as single people, tenants in common, then it will revert to the deceased persons heirs and the surviving person will not automatically get the property.
Pretty serious stuff. If you need smart guidance all the way through the transaction, contact me. I will facilitate a smooth stress free experience with no last minute surprises.
