    It was brought by him from a dealership? Will check the paperwork tomorrow.

    If he's willing to pay anything I would get it all done formally anyway. It shouldn't bother him if he is genuinely wanting to pay his way.

    Also, I'd ring Centrelink as soon as possible and update your relationship status as they will backdate any payments to your initial call.
    Thanks @harvs. Yeah I totally get what a lot of you are saying regarding a formal agreement etc. Guess I was hoping after we split last time he has grown up and actually sticks to his word. Better to be safe though.

    Im not in a huge rush to go to centrelink- he is rarely home anyway and while I know I could claim SPP while still living under the same roof, the stuffing around having to get proof etc hardly seems worth it when we can continue how we are atm. We are still getting along, just not in a relationship as such. He is free to do what he wants, as am I. And when he is home he does his own thing and I do mine. Im still in charge of the money (his pay goes into my account), so nothing in that respect will be changing yet. I wont be moving out until the new year- our lease expires and we have planned to move towns anyway and as I said he isnt home very much anyway. I remember from last time I had to prove I wasnt financially dependant on him while living under the same roof after we split, and it hardly seems worth it for such a short time until the move anyway.

    It probably sounds silly but I think we both remember the mistakes we made last time we split and are able to deal with it all a lot better. He knows what I am doing, we had a massive talk last night. He is in agreement that there's no point changing things financially until we have too.
