Thank you Clare, I have checked with Land Registry and all they have is (un-equal shares) on the Land Registry document.
Yes ex is demanding 50/50
I remortgaged my house to raise funds to buy land, there's no dispute re the 95% - 5% on my house as there was a deed of trust (different solicitor) but all I can find is a request from us to the solicitor re land to register the 70/30 and the unequal shares registered at Land registry.
Yes it is in writing. The solicitor sent a document for us to sign and return and the 70/30 split was there with both our signatures. However I don't seem to be able to locate where this particular document is or what it was. I do believe that it was paramount to the completion of the sale as I had to hand deliver it to enable the sale to complete on the day.
The original solicitor tells me that all documents relating to the purchase were sent to the 2nd one and the 2nd one says he has nothing in writing re 70/30 and no copy of this document. even though it is recorded with the Land Registry...... Is it a possibility that the seller's solicitor would have a copy of this??
Thank you for your reply, am I to understand that even without the original document that we both signed (it appears to have been lost by solicitors) but with the land registry document saying 'unequal shares' my ex needs to prove that he owns 50%?
