You can say that again, anyone that try to guess other people revenue then come to a conclusion must have plenty of time to bring their expertise to this forum. being an accountant is gained knowledge not necessarily a sign of intelligence.

OK jackass, cards on the table time.

How much do you make? How much did you partner make? How many kids were in the house? What were their ages?

If you have the nerve to provide that information I will tell you how much you ripped us off on the CTB.

But you will hide behind your "I didn't come here to discuss..." b/s won't you?

Yet another useless contribution to this thread from Max.

Anyways, might find some helpful information here:


Found here: Welcome to

You could call the upper canada law society and speak to a lawyer for $6 and they can give you a definitive answer.

See a lawyer and get a cohab agreement asap. Even if she doesn't get a great settlement going after the property later, your brother will pay pricey legal costs to fight a battle he could have made cut and dry in the beginning. If she hires an agressive lawyer, even if she doesn't have a leg to stand on, he will have to have an expensive battle. A good relationship can sour and become bitter. Protect yourself before that happens

Get a cohab agreement signed immediately. I am being sued for the increase in value of the home over the length of our cohab. My house on title. And beware, lots of lawyers don't know much about common law division of property. Better to sort it out now then have an expensive legal battle later. I'm going through it and so wish I had a cohab agreement. don't accept a verbal agreement. I did.
