You don’t have any claim if you have been contributing to food and suchlike all the TV or broadband although you do have a claim if you have contributed to the property directly or indirectly and if you paid all the other bills because if she was paying those other bills she wouldn’t have been able to pay the mortgage, then that is an indirect contribution.
Do you have a claim any money from the property or from her? Yes. That’s the easy part. The difficult part is quantifying the value of that and for that you need to look at all the outgoings of the property including the mortgage, the value of the property then, the value of the property now, and basically what she is prepared to offer you and what you are prepared to accept.
If she has offered you £2000, then clearly it’s not enough because she isn’t going to offer you anything like what it’s worth.
What you have to decide is how much you want from this and she has to decide how much she is willing to pay because there is no legal aid for this and if this ends up in court, the legal costs could be quite expensive potentially running into several thousand if not tens of thousands of pounds. It would be worth her pain quite a few thousand pounds just to get rid of you to avoid the court proceedings.
