my husband and I own an office condo. He is an MD and the business is his. Since I am an owner of the building, do I also own everything in the office?
Optional Information: New JerseyAlready Tried: nothing
If the condo came furnished and is only in your name, then you would own whatever came with the condo - as to his business records, etc you would not own those even though they are in the condo.
Reply to Michelle's Post: the condo did not come furnnished- we furnished it with loans in both our names. I want to know if all the furniture and records with our home address (in both our names) belong to both of us.
Yes, it does. Anything that you two bought jointly (whether before marriage or after marriage) is joint property and therefore belongs to both of you equally.
