Customer Question

i live with my boyfriend of 10 years for at leat the last 7 I've been paying the mortgage through my bank. i have always bought the food in the house although he buys his own takeaways. we both share electric as it is on the meter and he pays the gas . i pay telephone and wi-fi. he pays council tax. I also support my step son for 7 years and during university he was going to put my name on the deeds but because it was northern rock they wouldn't allow it. We would have to remortgage but he has such bad financial record that he wouldn't get a mortgage i was stuck . He recently had a loss whereupon his mother has dies leaving an inheritance over 600 thousand after tax. In this time I've never known a transformation of a person he has become a bully although it s emotional and mind games at this time it is getting worse. I have also lent him 10 thousand pounds over years, not written down. this was to pay his van when then were reposessing it and his ex partner, and computers from pc world. recently 6 thousand for a new van but i had to borrow that. i have also got reciepts i where i bought new kitchen and new fitted wardrobes about another 7 thousand.
i feel he trying to push me out- have i got any claim for compensation, can he lock me out if he gets desparate to get rid of me. if so how much will be looking at in costs. i earn a good average wage so threes no change of any interim support from legal aid if it still exists
