Hi, thank you for your question. Are you married to your partner and is the equity registered in the title, if so in what shares?
Thanks - are there any deeds of trust or formal agreements regarding the contributions?
Apologies, I cannot take a call at the moment but I can continue assisting you here
Thanks for confirming. You would need to obtain a new market valuation as this could be substantially different to the previous value - and therefore the current valuation will be what is relevant.
Legally, only the people named on the title are entitled to the property and the proceeds of sale. However, as there appears to be an intention between you and contributions to the improvements to the property, you would have a claim against him to obtain a share of the equity.
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.
