I have been given 3 months notice from my partner of 26 years

Customer Question

I have been given 3 months notice from my partner of 26 years to leave her house. Over the last 24 years she has had no income and I have paid for everything, eg new kitchen, conservatory,garage ,toilet and half the cost of the furniture, carpets etc. I have given her an allowance which is at the moment about 10000 per year.I feel it unfair that she can get away with this.Can you help?

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
I am afraid that you have no right to remain in the property after the three months have passed.However you do have a financial claim on the proceeds of sale - equivalent to the amount by which the work you have paid for has increased the value of the property.You are also entitled to any items that you have personally paid for in the property.sadly any money that you have gifted to her cannot be recovered.I am sorry not to give better news - please ask if you need further detailsClare
