of property. If the property is NOT a residence, please visit our section
If you own or are buying a residence, then various issues change depending
upon whether you are single, married, or non-married owners. Please select
the right page for you:
Single Owner is one individual who will
not be sharing any degree of ownership with another person.
Married Couple is any two people who
have a marriage which is recognized in and by the State of California.
Most marriages in other states and countries will be recognized in
California. The treatment of registered domestic partners in California
is largely the same as a married couple for State law purposes, but like
other owners for federal law purposes.
Other Owners are any combination of two or
more people who are not legally married to each other (and some aspects
of registered domestic partners). California does
not have "common law" marriage recognized over time, so this includes any couple
who is living together without a marriage certificate. It also includes
any two or more people who are buying property strictly for investment
