You need to marry her!

Reason 1) You have a good chance of having smart babies with a smart lady.

Reason 2) You'll probably be given a discount on rent as a wedding gift. I'm thinking about 15%.

He probably moved in with her 5 years ago and agreed to pay half the “rent” oblivious to the fact he was in actuality paying towards her mortgage.

A 5 year lease with a girlfriend is a pretty serious commitment, in and of itself. I would hope you’d discussed finances more than that.

And if she misrepresented herself on the contract is on both sides of the lease indirectly and everything, that sounds legally dubious but I’m no contract or real estate lawyer, especially for Singapore. Sounds fishy to me, (though if you are dating and living in her house paying her reasonable rent isn’t ridiculous, and a contract isn’t a bad idea.)

That would make more sense, and it's a bit sketchy hiding that it was her home for 5 years, but I know quite a few people who have openly done that with roommates. One person owns it, and the others pay fair rent for rooms. As long as the prices aren't exorbitant, it's not a bad idea if one person has the capital to own the home. Most young single homeowners I know do that.

my 23 year old daughter does this with her house in Summerlin, NV(a section of Las Vegas) I bought the house for cash(hit a jackpot) in 1999 and in 2000 after my youngest daugher was born I set up a trust that would pay all the yearly taxes until January of this year. She rented out the other 4 rooms to her friends she goes to UNLV with. 200$ each a month(all utilities included, Plus cable and internet). And she uses the money from the rent to pay her own bills(utilities and cable bundle, car payment and insurance) and the yearly taxes on the house.

A young couple were going on their honeymoon, but when the husband was anxious to get to bed, his new wife said "20 bucks". That came as quite a shock, but he was really ready after waiting for their marriage, so he paid up.
They rented a home, got jobs, raised children, but every time he wanted sex, it cost him $20, and while he got used to it, over time it really put a cramp on his lifestyle.
Finally after 40 years he came home and told his wife that the plant was closing, and at his age he doubted he could get a new job, but his wife just smiled and told him there was no need. They already owned the whole building, and several other rental properties. She had been carefully saving, investing and reinvesting all the money over the years. In fact they could afford for him to retire comfortably.
The husband was so happy, he couldn't speak for a few minutes, but then he cried and hugged his wife and said " If I'd known you were doing that I'd have given you all my business."

The problem here isn’t that you are paying a rent to your girlfriend, but that she hid the fact for 5 YEARS.
I would be curious about her excuse for lying by omission.
