Hi.
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
Unless you are married to him or you have paid into the pension you would not.
Similarly with property, you have a perfectly normal property claim if you have been making payments. That extends to quite a wide range of things - eg. adding extensions or otherwise improving the property.
Generally speaking, women do make some financial contribution these days.
If you have not though you have no claim just for having a personal relationship with him.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Jo
