I have been with my partner for 18 yrs. we bought a council

Customer Question

I have been with my partner for 18 yrs. we bought a council house 4yrs ago, I had been in council houses for 19yrs, he moved in with me for the last 6yrs of the 19. We got £75,000 off the price of the house. I do not pay the mortgage as I don't earn anything and look after our 9yr old son. I have half a house that my dad left me that my older daughter rents from me and my sister. If I left am I entitled to anything? Does he have any claim on my half of other house?
