2 years ago my daughter bought a house with her boyfriend.

Customer Question

2 years ago my daughter bought a house with her boyfriend. It cost £70,000 but needs lots doing to it.
I gave deposit £11,000 (including charge).
My daughter gave £8,000.
Her boyfriend also got her to take £10,000 loan out in her name.
He has been paying mortgage, insurance, giving my daughter £200 loan repayment into her bank account. Also paying council tax.
My daughter works and earns £1200 per month which she has been buying food and giving him money towards building materials and towards his self employed interior fitting business.
My daughters money paid for new roof, re-pinning wall.
The loan has been used to build a brick huge shed thing at bottom of garden instead of doing the house which is basically a shell.
He's taken my daughter's key and wont allow us to send an estate agent in to value it.
What are our options please.
He has been self employed for 18 months.
I think we can sell it but think it wont be worth any more than paid for it.
We could buy him out for about £5,000 which I don't think he will agree to.
I can afford to do it up.
We could ask him to buy us out in the future for a figure (which I would like to be £30,000 to get our money back). When he is in a position to re-mortgage when house done.
