Co own boat. If person dies do I automatically get boat or does it go to his estate. Been asked to accept £2500 so that he can say has some assets; as he doing his will. He has cancer and believes he is dying. Once to get his estate into order but as am co own the boat with him, once to buy me off with £ 2500. Am not happy as he is also being verbal obsusive but was told part of his illness. We are not married but leave in the same cottage. Once he was my partner but now just friends. He doesn't own the cottage.
I bought the boat for £ 18500 in 2002. Since then all the bills eg. mooring, boat licence, new canopy's etc have been bought by me and have receipts etc. He has maintained it but bills etc have been paid by me. On the 22nd March I paid £856 mooring fees and £ 251 boat licence. He says that was a gift. Am a pensioner so how can £ 1000.00 be a gift.
