Hi. Am separated from partner of 20 years, with two teenage children. Our property has been entirely finaced by me, but her names are ***** ***** deeds. Put 160k cash in at the beginning from sale of business, have paid 280k for mortgage payments, plus 100k on renovation works. Have also paid all the utility bills. Is there an absolute on a 50/50 split of the proceeds of sale, or is there any precedent for a court looking at what has been paid if it is 100% by any one partner. We are not married. Thanks
Hi Caroline. Believe Joint tenants - as she has been advised that she automatically has 50% of the equity regardless. It was done to ensure that the property would become hers if I predeceased her - am ten years older!
