Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you married to her and do tou have children together, if so how old and what are the proposed arrangements?
-Whose name is ***** ***** in?
-Are there any formal agreements or deeds of trust?
-What is the value of the property and outstanding mortgage?
Are there any formal agreements or intentions at all regarding the contributions?
Thanks for confirming. Firstly, the legal position as you are unmarried is that you are both legally entitled to a share of the proceeds of sale in accordance with how the title is held - so if it is as joint tenants then it will be 50-50.
However, given that you have made significant contributions it would be reasonable for you to seek a greater share of the proceeds because of the contributions but if she does not voluntarily agree to this you will need to apply to your local county court using form N1 and a £355 court fee.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.

No worries - by "present" do you mean including it in the will itself to pass on to each other upon death?
In the will, this is how property is dealt with upon death and not if you were to go to a nursing home so I do not see how this will impact anything.
