My daughter and her boyfriend of 2+ YEARS decided to move in

Customer Question

My daughter and her boyfriend of 2+ YEARS decided to move in together a year ago. Katy was happy to rent but Tom wanted to buy. Tom took on the mortgage and Katy pays Toms father back the £10000 deposit @ £300 pm. 2 weeks ago without any warning like a bolt out of the blue, Tom packed a small bag and left! He has his parents house and or his sisters to stay. Katy considers this as her home and has invested money, time and love into the house. Please can you briefly advise what she should do first and foremost. Thank you
