If you decide to buy a property with someone else, be it sibling, friend or acquaintance, then the next move must be the purchase of a co-ownership agreement. Don't even think of going another step further unless you protect yourself and your co-owner with this legal documentation. This contract will give you peace of mind should something go wrong.
Home Addressed has a co-ownership contract covering many contingencies and has been drawn up by a lawyer. It is conveniently available for you to download and is less expensive than if you were to organise one for yourselves. You should always seek independent legal advice to ensure that all bases are covered.
