Buying a house together as a couple is a huge milestone. Stepping into your dream home after months of spending your weekends in open houses and browsing homes for sale online can be a dream come true. Imagining the memories you’ll make in a new space that you own with your partner is one of life’s most singular pleasures. However, there are a few things you need to check before you sign on the dotted line. 

Here are three things you should be ready for when buying a house with your partner:

GETTING LIFE INSURANCE TO COVER YOUR BOND
We all know that it’s important to get insurance on our homes and its contents, but did you realise that you need life insurance to cover your bond when you buy a house? This is so that the bank has security on their loan – they know that if you pass away, the money will be available to pay back their loan. Of course, life insurance doesn't just protect the bank. It protects your family too; if anything happens to you, your insurance will cover the remaining bond and your dependents will be able to keep the house, either to live in or to sell and downsize. MiWayLife offers an excellent 4-in-1 life insurance policy with only one monthly premium.


AMENDING YOUR WILLS TO REFLECT YOUR NEW ASSET
Whether you are married or living together, purchasing an asset together is a rather big deal. As such, it has to reflected in your will and testament, so there is absolutely clarity about ownership and succession in the event that you or your partner should pass away. MiWayLife now offers will services – get in touch to learn more about their excellent offer.  

SAVING UP FOR UNFORESEEN EVENTUALITIES
When you buy a house, be prepared to incur expenses over and above the price of the actual house. There are many other ‘hidden’ costs that crop up along the way. This includes the rates of the transfer lawyers, bond lawyers, as well as the municipal transfer. Furthermore, once you’ve moved into your new home, you may notice a few things that need tending to – a little mould here, an aircon tune-up there. In short, it’s best to have some savings in reserve when you jump in. 

Having these three things in place when you purchase a home with your partner will give you the peace of mind to enjoy the process from start to finish. Keep an eye on the blog in coming weeks and months for more expert advice on making wise choices for your relationship. In the meantime, remember to live life to the full and enjoy every moment you have with one another. Life is short and there is no greater joy than sharing it with the people you love.
