I moved in with daughter & her husband 2011 after selling my

Resolved Question:

I moved in with daughter & her husband 2011 after selling my home to retire from work due to medical problems. This being at their insistence. I paid off their mortgage same year with a promised they were selling up to buy bigger property of us. This didn't happen and living situation became unbearable & was told to leave which I did but had to insist they pay back monies to enable me to purchase a house. They were very unhappy about this saying I should rent but eventually £80,000 was repaid & I moved out Feb 2013. I am still owed £27,000 but haven't received anything else. Needless to say the relationship has broken down & I haven't seen my daughter in almost 2yrs. I didn't obtain written agreement stating I repaid their mortgage but have bank statements & mortgage company's details showing monies transferred from my acct to mortgage company. What can I do to get the rest of my money back?

I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.

Not sure if you have received my reply sent last night but I will send info again.

I have bank statements showing monies transferred from my savings acct into my current acct as they wanted me to write a cheque directly mortgage company Bank of Ireland. I have cheque stub with details written on and also have mortgage acct number and telephone number. Hope this is enough info. Thanks, Jo

Thank you .
The starting point is a written request return of your funds.
If (when) that fails then you can sue your daughter and her husband using Money Claim online
https://www.gov.uk/make-money-claim-online
You have clear evidence that you paid the money - and that it was not a gift.
If you need further assistance please do not hesitate to ask
