Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Whose name is ***** ***** in?
-What is the value of the property and the outstanding mortgage?
-How was your £38,000 used on the property?
-Are there any formal agreements or deeds of trust in place?
-Do you have children together?
Is the title deed also in joint names and equal shares?
Thank you - you should first check here: https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry
You need to order the Title Deed (no need for the Title Plan) for £3 and it will show you the details of who is named on the title.
If you are named on the title and are joint tenants or tenants in common in equal shares, then legally you are both entitled to the property. If upon sale she contests that you should be entitled to equal share then she would need to pursue a court application and she would need to prove that both your intentions were that you would not equally share the proceeds of sale.
