Real Estate Law: Any Benefits To Us Getting Married Early?
March 30, 2014 1:25 PM Subscribe
YANL, YANML. I presently am on the deed to a house with a family member. We are joint tenants with full rights of survivorship. My family member holds the mortgage note entirely in his name. Other members of my family are becoming increasingly more aggressive in regards to me moving the mortgage into my name (which may not financially/credit wise be feasible).
My question is that I'm planning to get married later next month. Is there any benefit to me - to protect my interests in the property - to get married sooner?

Other miscellany: I live in Florida. I also think that my family members POA may be trying to do some kind of yucky, sneaky stuff (like create debt in my family members name in order to gain access to assets sooner or to try to make me and my fiancé appear to be tenants renting the house). To be clear, I am named on the deed.
