Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. She is not entitled to any of your business on the basis that she has never contributed to the business. She is entitled to a share in the house but you would be entitled to be recompensed for your contributions by way of deposit and fees. She could force a sale of the house and you could offer to buy her out. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
No, there is no law that says that. The law is that no person is forced to own a house with another. She can go to the sheriff court with an action of Division and Sale and you would have no defence to that, hence your best option is to buy her out.
