i would like some advise on the house I purchased with my husband

Resolved Question:

i would like some advise on the house I purchased with my husband and his family, i borrowed money from the bank for part of the deposit which myself, my husband and his sister is paying off. due to me taking out the loan the agent said that I probably would not be eligable for my name to be put on the mortgage so my husband and his sisters names are XXXXX XXXXX mortge but there is four of us paying back the loan. due to marital problems I would like some advise on how do I get my money that I have contributed towards the mortgage since I no longer want to be part of the property

Hi Clare


 


In our arguments he says that i will get the money when its due and i cannot wait for 20 years when the house is paid off I am thinking of ending my marriage to him

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
In fact you have two options available to you
You can indeed start divorce proceedings and within the financial side of the divorce proceedings make a claim against your husbands share of the property.
Alternatively you can use Property Law to seek a determination as to the extent of your ownership of the property ( it is clear that you were always intended to own 25% of the property) and seek an immediate sale.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
