Wondered if anyone could direct me to the right site
(Perhaps this is it)where retirees and those looking forward to retirement address the ownership of a home and the illness of a partner.

Friend has recently had the realization that her home, owned with another may be sold from under her due to the deteriorating health of the other.

She is seeing an elder lawyer. Fair is fair. If I put in 50/50 with a partner, not related to me by blood or marriage, is there a way to avoid such pitfalls? Plan to share a home similarly next year.

Will need a lawyer subsequently, but I want to know what the questions are before I get there. Like, should I adopt my friend? Create a corporation? That may sound crazy, but I heard of that years ago.

Hope someone is willing to talk about these things.

Thank you, trex88
