Cohabitation agreement

I am a widower with no children and have a high net worth, i’m 70 years old. I met a woman and we have been living together for six months. She has her own house but wants to rent it out and move in with me on a permanent basis. What steps should I be taking to clarify the financial situation in the event the relationship ends. We live in British Columbia

You will need to enter into a cohabitation agreement that lays out how assets will be split and how support is paid in case of separation. I wouldn't recommend that you move in until that is done. Best of luck!
