Does anyone do this?
I've been with her for 2yrs, and it looks like after xmas i'll be moving my stuff in. We discussed financial arrangements, but this is where things start to get messy.
I'll start off by saying that we both imagine being together for the forseeable future. Eventually, i guess, we'll be buying a house of our own.
She currently own's 2 house's. One is rented out, the other she bought 2 months ago and is the one we'll be living in.
When we discussed moving in together a few months ago she was quite clear that she'd support me in saving for my own place (buy to let) and as such wouldn't want me to be paying an over the top amount to live at hers.
Now, i would have no problem at all paying half the mortgage (which is £645pm) and half the bills (works out at about £250pm)if my name was on the mortgage. We did discuss buying together, but thought it best to wait a couple more years.
I've offered to pay £350pm, and do most of the shopping which would probably work out at around £150. But when i offered this she got arsey and said i was tight. Am i? I'm paying to cover any increase in bill's and also an amount towards the mortgage.
I've flat out refused to pay half of the mortgage, and reminded her that we discussed buying together in the summer.
In reality, i know that with 2 mortgages to pay she's panicing. But im not prepared to throw my money into something, and if something were to go wrong leave me with no chance in hell of me getting any money back.
I'm being tight? She's a bitch?
Surely having a male round the house is priceless?
