Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Have you paid for any substantial improvements?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
I am sorry but you are not then.
In fairness, even if you had been married, you would not have been entitled to a great deal.
If you are just ending a standard relationships then you don't have a claim upon each other's property.
If you had made contributions to the mortgage then you could have claimed and if you had made a substantial improvement then you would have a normal property dispute.
Can I clarify anything for you?
