My boyfriend of 9 years and father of my 7 year old son was in an accident at work over two years ago and has been on workman's comp ever since. It has been a long two years. He has been unable to go back to work and is unsure if he will be able to in the future. Now, he is about to get a settlement, and he wants to purchase a home for us with it. However, he does not want to put my name on the title to the land in any manner, not even for a percentage of what improvements I may financially add to the property. While I am glad that he wants to purchase the home outright with the settlement so we won't have that bill, I am hurt that he does not want to include me on the title. We have had our ups and downs in our relationship and have always got back together. I feel that my name should be included on the title, not that I want 50/50 ownership, just that I will more than likely be paying insurance, taxes, repairs & improvements. I feel like it takes the family out of it as well.
Am I wrong for asking for some sort of paperwork be drawn up that puts me as an owner to the property as well?
Please explain why you feel the way you do. I need honest unbiased opinions on this.
