Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-Have you had sight of the title deeds for the property?
Thanks. Before we proceed I would suggest you check the title deed which can be done online here for a fee of £3: https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry
Please let me know whose name the property is in and I can continue assisting.
Is that his father?
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.
