The payment to her father was a cash lump sum paid through our bank to her fathers bank.
We got the £25000. added on to our house which increased our Mortgage years and payments.
The payment was then used by her father to buy his council house from the council.
The payment was not a loan and I would also say also not a gift, as the payment was made to purchase her fathers council property through his name.
there was no signed agreement from me or my wife on the payment to buy her fathers house, just the payment through the bank.
in her fathers will and testimony upon her fathers death her fathers house would then go to my wife and her brother has the brother had done the same as me and our wife gave her dad £25.000
The payment from me and my wife was defiantly a payment to purchase the property for her father, but with no agreement at all or anything in writing, other than a £25000 payment through the bank to her fathers bank, then straight after her father brought the council property as we all agreed
As previous we are on the verge of splitting up and my wife is know saying the payment of £25000 to her father was a gift and it was nothing to do with purchasing her fathers house. which is untrue but the worrying thing for me is that I do not have anything in writing or any agreements on the transfer of £25,000 to her father other than maybe a Bacs Transfer payment and the upping of the mortgage payments and the extension of years
As we are on the verge of splitting up I have asked my wife for £12,500 back from her has my share of upping our mortgage years and payments, as her fathers house will be nothing to do with me upon splitting up.
