Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.

OK thank you, ***** ***** it with me. I am in court today so will prepare my advice during the day and get back to you at the earliest opportunity. There is no need to wait here as you will receive an email when I have responded. Thank you.
Many thanks for your patience. As the debt was not registered against the deeds of the property it will not be treated as a secured debt so you will not have a right to stop the sale or to automatically get parts of the proceeds of the sale. Therefore, contacting the solicitor dealing with the sale will not really do any good as they will not legally be obliged to honour the agreement you had with the boyfriend – that would be a personal agreement between you and him and not one which would officially be treated as part of the property sale. Therefore, if you wanted to take the matter further you would need to consider the small claims route because the conditions of the repayment have been satisfied and there is no payment forthcoming.
This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the formal steps you need to take to progress things further, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
