I've moved in with my gf and she owns her own home. I pay her half the total bills each month (including mortgage payment) but I'm not actually down on as a joint owner or anything. I'm fine with all that but when I'm filling in forms and stuff and it asks my status what do I put?! I'm not a tenant, owner, lodger etc..? Or am I?

    to be a tenant do you actually have to have official paperwork saying so?

    I don't know about over there, but proof of a month's rent paid here makes you a tenant.

    Is there a UK equivalent of https://answers.yahoo.com?

    You are a tenant and no, you don't have to have paper work. Just your make sure your name is on the council tax bill.

    Pussy whipped reprazent. I do the same regarding bills and mortgage (not on the deeds as well).

    I made this mistake in the past and realised further down the line! Huge barney ensued but believe out she was ultimately responsible for this. Good tactic If you want to be an arse and not compromise :smirk:

    Biggest ball-ache for us though is shopping. I’m a conservative shopper whereas she goes when she’s hungry (derp). Have to go through receipts once a month (or several later!) and deduct each others purchases and her propensity for buying tat.

    we don't take things that far like...if I go shopping I get what I think we need. If she goes she does the same. We aren't at the point where we are waiting each other out and seeing who can survive on bread and water the longest yet
