Thanks for your question. My name's XXXXX XXXXX I'm going to assist you with it.
First can you tell me how the property is held and whether you both are registered owners (joint tenants or tenants in common) or if you are the sole owner?
Secondly, does he contribute to the mortgage or has he paid for any substantial improvements?
Hi, thanks for this.
I'm not sure what you mean by "several tenants". Can i just confirm, is he registered as an owner of the property (i.e. is he on the title deeds)? If so, did you agree how the ownership would be split when you registered it or do you just hold it as "joint tenants"?
Also, how long has he been living there and is there any agreement as to the reason he pays the £430? Is it just for bills and food or is it for mortgage payments and was there an agreement that he would become entitled to a share in the property as a result of these payment?
