Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. Who is the legal registered owner of the property? Kind regards AJ
Thank you. The only additional security you could have would be a charge over the property in respect of your monies - this would expensive and you would need a solicitor - and her mortgage lenders consent (if applicable). The boyfriend wont have any claim on the property, unless she promises it to him and for example he starts renovating the property or paying towards the mortgage on the understanding that he will get a share in it. You could just ask the boyfriend to sign a letter saying that he acknowledges he has no "right, title or interest in the property" either now or in the future - and will take no actions to challenge, blight or detriment your daughter's interest in the property. Will he pay her rent?
Thank you. If he is going to pay her rent - then they should have at least a tenancy agreement - so he acknowledges that the money is only rent and is not in anyway a contribution towards ownership of the property. Kind regards AJ
No problem. If I can assist any further please let me know. I would be most grateful if you would kindly rate my response. Kind regards AJ
