Hi, thank you for your question. Is there a deed of trust in place, or any formal agreements?
Why was your name not put on the property?
Thanks for confirming. Firstly, the legal interest in the property is for the person who holds the title. If there is no agreement between you on the division of it, then you will need to apply to court and the court will consider your intentions and whether you should be compensated for your contribution. Usually, if a person is making a contribution to the purchase but is not on the title, for whatever reason, a deed of trust is drawn up to reflect this and make the process of dealing with division in the future - but in your case you will need to demonstrate that there was an intention that you would be compensated for your contributions.
