Customer Question

I am currently filing for divorce. There are three names on the title deeds; my mother, who is registered disabled and has had two recent disablement grants awarded which has seen the ground floor extensively adapted for her needs plus new paths allowing access for a wheelchair. I am also on the deeds as I am her registered carer and then my wife. I am on a small pension of just £7145 per year. My wife will be moving into council accommodation with her rent paid for and all benefits. Where do I, and my mother stand regarding my wife who may try to make a one third claim on the property as no company will grant me a loan as I am now 63 years old and on low income and the residue left if the property was sold would be insufficient to purchase another especially with my mother's disabled requirements.

Were you parents the original owners - if so did you"buy into" the property?
