do I have any rights over house or anything??
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for confirming. Given that the property is not in your husband's name it will not be considered a matrimonial asset. You therefore have no automatic rights or a legal interest in the property. However, if you have a formal agreement or have made any significant contributions to the property you would be entitled to make a claim to your local county court using form N1 and a £355 court fee against the father.

I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
