Customer Question

hi
myself and partner at the time bought a council owned property.
she was the registered tenant and thus became the only name on mortgage.
i have paid the mortgage although have no physical proof for last 15 years.
we have 3 children.
she hasn't lived or contributed to any house hold cost for last 5 years.
in short i am being told that i have no recall on the property.
surely i must be at least half owner?
