In what way?
Let me see if I can help and please rate 5 stars. The starting point is that if they are no married there is no rights to anything from the other party unless there is an agreement or indeed a child. Cohabitation does not automatically give you rights to the home you share. Problems can occur, particularly when one of you moves into a property the other owns or rents.
If the property is rented, only the tenant(s) named in the rental agreement generally has the right to live there - and has responsibility for paying the rent. If you are not a named tenant:
Similar rules apply if the property is owned by one of you. The property owner is the only one entitled to live there - anyone else can be asked to leave. The owner can also make decisions - such as selling the property - without consulting their partner.
However, even where only one of you owns the property, the other may have some rights (eg to a share of the money if the property is sold). This can happen if:
From what you have written it does not appear that she has any claim - the key is what she/he paid for (where him - then his) and whether there was an agreement between them. I hope that this makes sense and please rate 5 stars
On that basis she has no entitlement.If the property is in joint names then one of them would have to leave - he can surrender the tenancy at the time of the break clause.
