Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
What was the £11,000 actually used for?
How much did you spend on the workmen?
How much did the work they did enhance the value of the property?
Did you also pay for furniture?
On what basis did you pay the money - did he say it was a loan, or that you would have a share of the property?
