Thanks for your question.

1. Are there any children of the relationship
2. Are you married

3. Will he contribute more in rent/mortgage repayments than he otherwise would have paid if he was living in her own private rented accommodation?

4. Will he make capital repayments to pay off significant sums of the mortgage?

5. Will he pay for/carry out significant improvements to the property which improve the value of the property?

Kind regards,
