There is no mortgage on the flat. The flat is in Bulgaria and it is mine from my family.Worth about £45000.
The money was used for refurbishing the flat, putting in a new kitchen, decorating, buying the kitchen appliances etc. He and his child were living in the flat for two and a half years after the flat was ready. Then he left. Does it mean that if i have to return all the money to him, then i can charge him rent for living in my flat. Also I thought that money that he saved while we was living as a family should belong to both of us or am i wrong and all the savings has just been his? thanks
Probably about £5000 on the structual work - kitchen, bathroom and floor and £8000 for the furniture and appliances- tables, chairs, sofa, wardrobe, fridge, oven, hobs etc.
Nothing written involved. I just want to know if it is fair for him to request all this cash back after so many years not paying for his child. Can I backdate a child maintenance claim and tell him that the amount he invested in my flat represents his maintenance for these 4-5 years and close the argument? Tks
ok, so in your opinion i can basicaly keep whatever he put in the flat and it will be fair after not paying his child maintenance for so long. But my main concern is if he can really count that the money saved was only his money providing that we were living as a family and i was covering bills and looking after the child's needs. He would not have been able to save if i was not working too that time. Am i correct? Thank you!
Hi, i did not want to claim any of his savings. The money is already spent long ago and he used to live in the flat that he furnished, not just me. Child maintenance can not be backdated you say, but he should account for all these years if he is an honest man, isnt it? tks!
