Hi,
Thanks for your question.
Are you both listed on the title to the property?
If so, did you both execute a declaration of trust confirming your respective percentage interests in the property?
Kind regards,
Tom

Yes both names are ***** ***** title of the property, I don't know about the declaration
Expert:  Thomas replied 1 year ago.
Hi,
The declaration would, for example, state you had "X" % of the property and she had "Y" percent. Do you remember both stating anything like this when you purchased the property?
Who contributed to the financing of the purchase of the property ?
Are there any children of the relationship?
