I think that you
need to do two things if you are going to carry on.
The first thing
you need to do is formalise the agreement of who has what part of the property
and therefore that will crystallise who gets which income. At the moment, the
arrangements of a bit here and a bit there and a bit deducted for something
else which may or may not be paid by someone who may or may not pay it is
extremely fragmented and bitty and are not surprised that it is a bit of a
mess. He seems to be taking advantage of that using smoke and mirrors.
The next thing to
do is to lay down on paper exactly what is being paid by who , in respect of
what and when, and then do a reconciliation of what is owed by who, to whom in
respect of what.
The more work you
do on this the less work you will have to pay a solicitor or an accountant for
it I suggest that when you have got all your figures together, you get the
accountant to check over them.
You then present
them to the other guy and ask for the money until you doesn't cough up or comes
with an excuse, then you are faced with suing him.
As I said earlier,
the most important thing to do, at this stage, is to formalise who is running
which part of the business
