Customer Question

We have been living together for 13 years and married for 6 of and living in my house which is in my name.

All of a sudden my wife wants it to be put in both names. In the event of separation will this allow her to get me out and / or claim all of property in event of a divorce?

Thank you for your question.

I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
Are there any children involved?

My apologies for the delay
In fact whether her name is on the deeds or not does not effect her entitlement in the event of a divorce.
It would however be more effective in the event of your death and would certainly give her more security in that event
Please ask if you need further details
