I have been hearing a lot about the option of simultaneous settlement. Actually I and my girlfriend have been thinking of buying a new place. But the thing is that she already owns a place. We have been living here for the past five years. We are both in mid thirties. But since we are thinking of getting married and starting a family, we have decided to look for a bigger place. Both of us are schoolteachers and cannot really afford to change or quit the jobs at the moment. We earn around $ 30,000 per annum each. But since we are planning for a future and a family, we do not really want to use up much from our savings as well. What would be the best thing for us to do under such circumstances? We would be happy to have any kind of suggestion or guidance.
