  • buying a house California

    I want to buy a house in California with or without co borrower (my spouse) in my loan and we have 3 kids and 2 stepkids from my spouse. My question is who get the house if I'm die? or we both die? or we get divorce? and also what do I need to know before buying a house.

    The best advice I can give you is to consult with a CPA or attorney in your area. You have presented many different questions that make answering your questions in a general forum like this impossible.

      Who gets the home? If you don't have a Will, nows the time to get one. If you die without a Will (intestate), the State will determine how your property is divided in accordance with applicable intestate succession laws in California. Your attorney will advise you that in your Will you will need to make proper provision for any dependants otherwise your Will could be challenged.

      What do you need to know before buying? That my friend is a very lengthly answer. In fact, we wrote a book about it.
