However, if you and someone else are buying the house, and you're not married, please check with a lawyer. It can get very messy if the two of you separate or go your own ways. What you need is some up-front agreement that says who'll be responsible for the house--or how ownership will be handled--in case you two separate.
Hope that helps.
Best of luck in what I hope is a home pursuit.
Good thing it don't work that way anymore.
All the Best
