She lives in England

Hi, thank you for your question. As they are not married she will have no legal or beneficial interest in the home if her name is ***** ***** the title. Furthermore, if her name is ***** ***** the title of the property and she contributes towards the outgoings for property such as the mortgage, this does not raise an automatic interest in the property and, save for a formal signed agreement between them demonstrating this intention, it will be difficult and costly for her to prove such an interest in the event of a separation in the future.It is therefore important that she has her name on the title of the property that they are purchasing together.
