Hi My partner of 6 years suddenly left me without warning in June of this year. There was no violence or fighting but she is accusing me of mental abuse to her and her son. We have quarreled on occasions but nothing that I thought was so serious as to make her leave the way she has. She has a registered charge of a large amount of money invested in my house which is in my name only. The 'loan' was a deposit on the house. The loan agreement is in her name but the money was given to us by her parents in 2010. I, intern gave my previous house to her parents for the value of the outstanding mortgage as a thank you for the loan. I lost an estimated £20'000 in equity on that house.She has not contributed in any way with regards ***** ***** of any bills since we lived together and I have supported both her and her son since we've been together. She is now demanding that I sell my home to pay her the money back. Where do I stand ?
I was away the weekend she left and came home to a house which had been 'stripped' of nearly everything we owned. my partners mother employed two men in a large white van to empty the house with out my knowledge. Some damage was left by them moving items including flooding as the washing machine was removed incorrectly.
I have learned that my partner had planned this move with the aid of her mother for a few months prior to leaving me.
I had absolutely no idea or warning of her leaving.
Value of the house is estimated at £150'000
Outstanding mortgage is £79'000
Value of the loan is £50'000
Unsure at this moment, but being self employed in a new business (15 months) I don't think I can get a larger mortgage.
Saying that, I haven't spoken to my mortgage company as of yet.
Sorry for the late response
There is documentation of the sale and values with my ex partners solicitor which I have applied for.
It was a gift from me as a thank you to her parents for helping us to buy the new house.
For some reason or another the money could not just be 'given' to us as it had come from another country where they were living at the time and so a loan agreement was written out by our (at the time) solicitor.
My ex partner has never had money, it was her parents who gave us the money.
Money laundering and tax avoidance were mentioned but what that related to I do not remember.
My apologies for late reply.
As far as I can tell there is nothing to say when the loan has to be repaid.
it is now with the solicitor I mentioned at the beginning.
She also stated there was no repay date.
No, there is no interest mentioned on the loan agreement
I does look that way, yes.
Although now that she has left me she believes the court will make me sell the house to pay the money back
