Hello, I am a solicitor with 20 years expeerience. I will try to help you with this.
It can be. Can you give me more details please?
So Paula bought her council house in her name as she was entitled to buy it as the tenant and you had an agreement that you would fund it through a mortgage and that after she had bought the property then you would be added as an owner to the deeds?
I think it is likely that there is an enforceable contract between you and her based on the words said between you.
What is the situation between you and Paula now?
This isn't really about contract law it is a family law dispute, not something I am very expert on I am afraid. I will opt out add hopefully a family law expert will pick it up.
Thank you for your question
