We originally built & paid for the stables together in 2001, half & half. The land is rented. The original contract was in both names but I recently found out she removed my name without me knowing, apparently a few years ago, but I continue to pay rent every 6 months like I have for 15 years. I give her cash that she apparently "pays" the land owner. I never asked for receipts as I didn't think it would be needed! She has now told me I have 3 months notice.....where do I stand legally not only with the land & having to move my horse & also my half of the stables which she has said "her husband" has " covered " with jobs he has done around the yard over-the years but any work he has done I have paid cash for to her.....
Can she legally give me notice
Even though she has removed my name from the original contract? And I have no proof of receipts for rent etc?
And if I have no copy of the original contract where do I stand? I am still trying to get a copy of this from the estate agent but given its 15 years ago I don't know what success I will have. So to confirm the land is rented the stables we buit & spilt the cost. I need to be 100% sure as my horses lifew is at stake here. I need legal advice that I can push back with, not just a one line sentence that says she needs a court order. I need to be able to push back & say because of x y z you can not legally do this....... does this make sense?
What is a court order? What does it do? Sorry for keep asking questions but you have no idea what she is like. I've seen you offer a phone consultation maybe this would be easier?
Hi, I'm not sure how I respond to the phone call offer, so replyING here.I would like to do this, but I want to get a bit more proof as in the original contract etc etc. She has blantly told me my horse has health issues which "she deals" with every day...which is news to me as my horse is fit healthy and amazing for 24. She neglects to say anything about the old horse we share. Im happy to pay so far, but don't want to "close" or have another person comment on this. So maybe you can advise how best to handle this. Thank you Sara
Oh,& to boot she has told me that the value I paid for n half of the stables approx €200 - 25k plus has been wiped out by the maintenance her husband has done around the yard/ field. I dispute this as no way has that amount of work been under taken, & any additional work has been paid for. Again in cash, with minimal evidence of this, but surely if she thinks £25k is a "trade offf" on top of what I paid, then surely this would be declared as "wages / an asset " ...one that wasn't agreed!
Last question. So what if I can't find the original contract that had my name on it in 2001, and now only has her name on it. Does what you say still stand? Thanks
