If you meant co-ownership, then it depends on how you take title to the property. A 'Joint Tenancy' will have equal shares whereas for a 'Tenants in Common', the co-owners can determine and agree on a certain percentage of ownership. I can be reach at 702.280.8859 or via if you have other questions.

By negotiation.

You should have a written agreement drawn up in case of incapacity of one of the owners. If Bernie falls off a bike and hits his head, his family may claim rights to his half of the property and maybe more.

All the best,

The person putting up the cash usually gets the higher percentage.

Unless there is some non-monetary consideration, the ONLY fair way is to match the contribution of equity. Sometimes if the property is being improved/developed, one party may contribute more labor, etc. and this can adjust equity.
