In what context?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Do I have any legal claim too any money if we were to separate, as I do not have any but my partner is wealthy.

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
I am afraid not - unless you have bought a property together or with the intention that the property would be a joint property. In the UK there is no 'maintenance' or 'entitlement' unless you were married or in a civil partnership. Happy to discuss but please rate positive

Even though I've kept the house looked after the dogs cooked cleaned etc for 15 years, I do have some correspondence with this address on but nothing legal even if I have witnesses to say I've lived here for 15 years Thanks

Expert:  Thomas Judge replied 1 year ago.
The key is what conversations you have had - i.e. was the house bought for both of you - was that the joint intention? If not then I am afraid you would not have a claim. Please rate positive - thanks
