Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will assist you.
Please may I ask:
- do you have any minor children?
- is divorce contemplated?
- when was the house purchased?
- what are the other matrimonial assets including pensions?
Thank you for your response.
As you are married - should divorce proceedings commence then either yourself or your wife are able to make a claim in respect of the matrimonial finances.
There is a set process to dealing with the matrimonial finances.
The first step is full and frank disclosure of all matrimonial assets - this includes the assets and liabilities for both of you - which includes the house.
Once full disclosure has taken place - then discussions can take place in respect of division.
The starting point for a lengthy marriage - over 5 years - is equality - that being equal.
Whilst I note that you have not been married for this period - courts can take into the length of a relationship beforehand.

As discussed - here is the link for the the Matrimonial Homes Rights Notice:

This is the telephone number for the Land Registry so that they can tell you which office to send the form too:
This type of application is normally dealt with by the land registry very quickly and they d not have a charge for this service.
Let me know if I can help you further.
My apologies for my delay in responding to you.
It is often wise to ask the police to attend with you - if they are able - so as to ensure that your wife does not later allege that you have taken other items. It is not necessary.
