The Total Guide: Home Buying for Same Sex Couples

Purchasing a home is a major undertaking for any couple, but same-sex couples must be especially diligent to make sure their investment and their interests are protected. This is due in part to inconsistent marriage laws in America and because of varying laws handling the disposition of a property with multiple owners. Purchasing a home with your partner is an exciting time in both of your lives, but it is absolutely imperative that you plan ahead so that you can avoid potentially serious financial and emotional stress in the future.

The guide is available here:

They plan on updating the guide regularly, and hope that this information will be helpful to many people.

This guide was developed with the assistance of Bruce Bell, Legal InfoLine Manager at GLAD.
