Hi there, i am in Scotland, separated from husband Dec last year. We are in talking terms. My name was never on the mortgage, but lived in his house for 10 years. I don't know where to start what I am entitled to? I obviously contributed to bills.
the house was bought by my ex husband in 1996 for 63K. We got together in 2002. I moved in in April 2004 and moved out in Jan 2014. We married in Aug 2005. Separation Date 20 Dec 2013.
We put an extension on the house in 2006. The house is worth about 180K at the moment. We don't have children.
So even though I have lived in the property and contributed to bills etc. I am not entitled to anything? I thought there was a thing about value increase during the time I lived in the property that I might be entitled to? As I have paid bills etc. which obviously contributed to the household. I also initiated loft insulation, cavity wall insulation. Paid for windows, insurance during that time.
So no rights towards property at all?
