Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is the property worth and how much did the extension add to the value?
How much did you pay towards it?

I think its worth about 100 thousand the extension would have added probably another 30 thousand I have paid all the instalements on the loan for the extension which I can prove which comes to 3000 or thereabouts. I have read something about beneficial or implied trust. I was expecting to marry this man as we were engaged We have mirror wills and life insurance now he expects me to live ina room at my mum's house and ' forget' about any money I have put in so my enquiry is am I entitled to any money from the property as there was an implied trust?

Hi
For clarity - A loan was taken out for the extension and you paid it - is that correct?
Whose name was on the loan agreement
