My significant other and I are considering moving in together. He will sell his house and move in with me. We are trying to determine the best way to split costs. If we divide the house payment equally, and things don't work out between us, does he have any claims of equity for the time he lived here? Naturally, he will be doing work around the house, cut grass, blow snow, etc. What is the best way to handle this?

This is too complex an issue to deal with by email. What is clear is that you can use an agreement between the two of to cover expense sharing, and who will get what if someone dies or wants to leave. Without an agreement, there will be a mess with results that maybe neither one of you anicipated. Let me know if you want me to help. Best wishes, Mark J. Mahoney, 920-984-4529
