The Advice (question and answer forum) is open to the public. Any question or reply you post on Trulia will be seen by everybody who looks at it.

What I have to laugh at is the realtors who ask stupid questions that they should ask their broker / Office Manager. There are also plenty of agents who pay monthly advertising fees to Zillow and Trulia. Those agents have personal reps from Zillow and Trulia. If an agent in the office needs help - it would be much better to ask one of those agents personal reps from Trulia on an issue regarding the website or listing. This way the agent doesn't appear stupid on an open forum. ... more

As Sally said ... just because her name can't be on the loan ... doesn't mean it can't be on the deed.

But be honest with yourself, the headache isn't due to the loan product you chose ... it is because you are playing house with a woman you are not married to and you are trying to determine an equitable distribution of the assets.

This relationship doesn't sound very stable. If each of you want to protect your own assets ... where is the "we" in this relationship? If there is no "we", why did you just become legal partners in a house? (Put her on the deed and you just formed a legally binding partnership)

If you think you are headed toward marriage ... then Don't sweat the option of lost rental income you could have had. If she is like a fraternity brother or a stranger ... charge her rent. If she is a partner, then treat her like family ... since you want to play house with her.
