2. Dear *****, as far as cohabiting partners are concerned, it is only payments directly related to mortgage repayments which count when determining who owns a property. So here you own your own home free and clear and your partner has no lawful claim on it. Similarly, he owns his mortgaged house and his own house you refer to. So the bot***** *****ne is he cannot claim for half your house.
