My wife and her sister purchased a property in approx 1995. My wife and I were married in 1998 and I contributed fully to upkeep finances etc. In known to me she and her sister saw a solicitor in about 2005. She now states that I have now legal recall to any monies associated with the property. We are currently at logger heads and she has asked my to move out. What are my rights?

Hello,
If the property has been your matrimonial home, you have a right to live in it until your divorce is finalised.
So, you do not need to move out and depending on your personal circumstances, you may be awarded a share of the property even though your name is ***** ***** the deeds.
The usual starting point is 50/50 split of the assets belonging to the couple.
May I help further?
