Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. When did you separate?
The reason I ask is that he has until a year from the separation to make a claim in court under section 28 of the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006. After that he would not be able to claim as the house is in your name. Even if he does claim he would have to prove that he had contributed to the relationship in a way that he was entitled to be cpmensted in some way for his contribution. From what you say that would not be the case as you had to pay off debt and effectively salvage what there was. So currently he has made no contribution for which he should be compensated. I would resist his attempts to intimidate you. Happy to discuss this further. In the meantime I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
