Hi there

According to the spanish law he is the owner and if you ask her for money you will have to probe she owes that you claim for.

So, the chance to get some money back will depend on what you could probe

Thank you

I have to prove that I paid for the house myself and he didn't pay for anything? He didn't contribute any money towards it?
Expert:  José M. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, even you will have to pay you do not give her the money as a gift is she says so

Its hard to prove.

I'm quite confused.I paid 100% for the house but it is in my name and Scott's nameCan Scott get half of the house ?

Of course. For the spanish law the propiety is not yours, is of both of you, you two have the same rights

If you want to ask her for money is another problem, but this propiety is of both of you

Thank you
