Hi, thank you for your question. Please confirm:
-Is there a deed of trust or agreement in place regarding his contributions?
Thanks for confirming. In the circumstances, unless he can demonstrate that there was an intention between you that he would be compensated or his contributions would create a share for him he would not be entitled to anything due to you not being married and the property being in your sole name.
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
No, to be clear in England and Wales the law is that unless there is a formal agreement, deed of trust or any other way to demonstrate intention (eg. emails or letters confirming this) then he would not be entitled no matter how long he has lived there.
No worries, I hope it goes well. If you have any questions in the future you can ask for me directly by starting your question For Harris
