Yes, the signed deed of trust is held by the conveyancing solicitor.
50/50 in terms of equity, etc., but with heed paid to the deposit contributions which was lopsided (about 35k from me versus about 7k from her - from memory).
My question is in anticipation of this being an issue, it is not yet an issue. However, in the event that we split up, I believe strongly that my partner would not want to sell.
Yes, we are both in the properly currently. Like I said already, I am just trying to anticipate what could happen rather than respond to its reality - to empower myself if the dissolution of the relationship happens.
I meant "empower myself" in the sense of being properly informed about the situation.
She will not want to sell, and will not be able to buy me out immediately. She will want a situation where she remains in the property.
Are we done now? Because each time you ask me a direct question, I reply, expecting that you will respond. Until now, you have fulfilled my expectations...
Each time you responded to me you asked me a direct question - to which I gave a response. This worked fine for several "turns" but after receiving my last answer you just disappeared. I then sent an additional question about whether we were done, and you seemingly ignored that as well. Leaving me hanging like that in a situation that is clearly difficult and stressful for me is certainly not good practice, and is barely acceptable - hence the "poor" rating.
I am still waiting for some sort of response....
It is not bad news in so far as all I wanted to do was understand my position - whatever it may be. However, he seemed to make a lot of assumptions, and then seek clarification from me about details of o ne sort or another.
I was very frustrated about the fact that he simply stopped responding to me after I kept answering the questions he posed. I assume that the answers were consequential, but if not he could have simply ended the interaction in a more socially acceptable way!
Thanks for your input.
