Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
I'm just reviewing your question.
Is there a trust deed drawn up at the time of purchase that sets out the deposit amounts?
Ok. It's not likely that there is one in that case.
If there is no trust deed, then in law you are both equal owners, and the deposit amounts are not relevant.
What is the difference in the amounts put in, in real terms?
OK. So you have the legal position. In the same way that your greater contributions during the relationship do not give you a right to a greater share, neither does his greater deposit - you are joint owners and in the first instance each entitled to 50% of the proceeds of sale.
I hope this clarifies the point.
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
