Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further informtaion first
Were you married to each other?
Did he make any financial contribution to the property?
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
Who paid the deposit and purchase costs?
How much did you pay for it?
Was any agreement made about what share he should have at the time the purchase happened (or later)
My apologies - I missed your last answer
Do you have a child together - if so how old are they
Are any under 18?
I am afraid that the fact that he paid the mortgage does give him a potential financial claim on the property I am afraid - and the charges that he is facing do not change that.
However his claim is limited since he will be having to justify what his share should be and it will not be 50% or anything close.
£10,000 to £15,000 is likely to be the most he might achieve in court - with an offer of £5,000 being sensible!
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
