Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-Are there any formal agreements or deeds of trust?
-Why was your name taken off the property?
-What are the proposed arrangements for your daughter?
Thanks - you state your names are ***** ***** deeds, but then say that your name was not taken off? Have you checked with the land registry to make sure the position? You can obtain a copy of the title deed here for £3: https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry
Thank you for clarifying.
In those circumstance, and as you are not married, you have no legal interest in the property. However, if you were able to demonstrate intention that you were to obtain a share of the property then this will give rise to a claim by you against him for a share of it.
Furthemore, as you have a daughter together, if you are unable to meet your housing needs to appropriately accommodate her, then you can make a claim to your local family court under the Children Act using Form A1 and a £255 court fee in order to have the property held for her benefit until she reaches a certain age (such as her finishing education.

I appreciate that you had initially held the property in your name, however upon remortgage you transferred the property to his sole name thereby transferring all your legal interest.
Legally, he would be able to ask you to leave upon reasonable notice - however, as you have a child together and if such eviction will put you at risk or harm you can apply to court for an occupation order using form FL401.
In relation to your continued payments towards the outgoings, this will support your case to show that you both may have had intention that you would realise some share of the property and the court will investigate the history of the property transactions and finances.
