Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you married to each other?
-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and proposed arrangements?
-Whose name is ***** ***** title?
-Are there any formal agreement or deed of trust in place between you?
Thank you for confirming. Legally, as you are not married and there are no formal agreements in place, you are not entitled to a share of the property despite your contributions towards the mortgage.
However, you would be entitled to pursue a court application in relation to your contributions and you will need to demonstrate that there was some agreement or intention between you that your contributions would entitle you to a share of the property.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
Is he in agreement with you "buying a share" or being added to the title?
Thank you. Before doing anything you will both need to enquire with the mortgage provider about adding you to the mortgage as it will be down to them to agree this. If they agree to do this, then it will make the process easier as part of the agreement.
Once added, you will (preferably due to the potential legal complexities to ensure that it is done correctly) need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor to transfer a share of the property to you in accordance with what you have both agreed, so if it unequal shares it will be as tenants in common and you will be added to the title.
