Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
What rights does my partners ex have to his house if she has never contributed any monies towards it.her name is ***** ***** mortgage papers .
They arent married but have two kids.one has moved out and the other is 15 and still lives at home.she doesnt provide for her at all.he pays for everything.she has never in twenty years given him anything.she works at night and gets cash in hand but they never see any of it and she sleeps all day.we have just got back from holiday and got a letter saying she wants 50% of what the house is worth and if not he has to sell the house leaving him and his daughter homeless.oh and just a small issue she still lives in the house with them .
So what would your best advice be.i told him that he should get a solicitor and let them deal with it on his behalf.failing that should he get the house valued and remortgage and give her half as an out of court settlement, or should he take it to court and see what happens.its worrying us both sick as I dont think shes being fair .
Should he speak to his morgage company before speaking to a solicitor with reference to taking her name off the morgage papers, but now hes had a letter stating she wants to apply for a trust of sale should he go straight to a solicitor with the letter.
I have told him and we call his solicitor first thing in the morning.does she legally have any rights to custody of the daughter at home.meaning as he has proved for her and never had a penny from her
