Title deeds in both our names
Mortgage in both names
Did not sign any document stating shares, was not offered to us
We both work, have full time jobs,my income is significantly more than hers
House valued @ £145,000
Mortgage outstanding £91,000
I redecorated the whole house myself, my time and labour
I bought a new fridge, washing machine, double bed to replace broken before I purchased the house
Bought new leather sofas since house purchase
At the time of purchase as she was the owner, value £85,000, mortgage £67,000 which she could not pay and would have had to sell and lost the house, so I helped keep a roof over her and children's heads
Most of the improvements, i.e. kitchen, bathroom, carpets were paid from additional mortgage, the value of which she could not get on her income.
I hope this helps and I wish you the best of luck.
Thanks and best wishes...
