Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Clare

Around £130,000 approx and owes around £7000 would need to check figures with him.Not sure of the circumstances with his wife since having the stroke things have been difficult but the house was bought before they got married its in his name only. He wants to protect his children.

Hi
I am sorry but if the aim is to ensure that this property will not form part of the matrimonial assets in any divorce then it will not succeed.
However there is no reason why he should not gift this property to you if there are other legal reasons for doing so
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
