    If you are purchasing a home/investment property as a de-facto couple, how should the titles be structured in case there is a break up in the future? What is the most secure way to walk away with your portion of the investment without things getting messy?

    Tenants in common and a legally binding agreement with pre agreed terms if something goes wrong down the track is what I would do.

    Interestingly to see what others say.

    If it's an investment, better to buy 2 small properties than 1 large one.

    Works better for land tax, lender servicability, long term structuring, easier management, and easier to divide if need to.
