In cohabitation, unmarried people are living together as a couple. Unmarried couples in MD are able to get joint assets before they can get house insurance, which means listing their names on their home as joint tenants." This means that deeds and documents will confirm that both people are living in the home and both are considered full owners of it. Then, unmarried couples should be able to get home insurance after they have proven that they are joint tenants by applying for this privilege with the state. The language on the deed should be changed to indicate that joint tenancy is desired. It should be written out explicitly on the deed or title, and it should let the home insurance company know that the unmarried couple has established joint tenancy with the home in question. This way, it is easy to list both of their names on the home insurance document, thus insuring their commitment to the home.""
