I will wait,thank you.
I need an answer really, so will wait.
Hello Claire, no there wasn't. At the time it was in negative equity.
So at the moment she is just on the mortgage. I have no issue with her having good 50% entitlement to the proceeds when sold.
In my layman's view she is part owner of the house so not longing with me of they move in and will just share expenses,thus I don't think I have to declare it as income.
Thank you Claire, apologies, I see my writing was a bit erratic, with the help of predictive text! I see you got the crux of it though. I will just get her to pay her and her partner's share from her account and sort the rest between them, so there is only a contribution from her coming into my account. It is exactly what I needed to know, thank you.
