Ca you purchase a home with someone even if you're not married?

And will you be able to be on the mortgage jointly? My girlfriend of 6 years and I would like to buy a house but we are not interested in getting married. Worried it will compromise the loan

Hi there,Yes, you can absolutely purchase a property together, regardless of whether you are married or not. You just both need to be cognizant of the consequences should things not work out and you both own your primary residence (and, if you are both borrowers on the mortgage, both responsible for repaying the loan). But your ability to obtain a mortgage is in no way diminished by the fact you are not married. Feel free to contact me for any other information.

Yes, there is no requirement for you to be married to purchase a home together. You can choose how to hold title to the property (Joint Tenants or Tenants in Common). I can explain that to you further if you want to contact me. Office: 651-762-3572 wnelson@lakeareamtg.com

You can purchase a home with anyone, you do not need to be married. Just take into consideration what will happen in the case that you and your girlfriend do not stay together for the entire loan. It is not so easy to get someone removed from a loan. You must refinance the mortgage.
