Of course. You are named on the title which is a good start and have also contributed towards the equity which is also beneficial. If you held as joint tenants, upon your death your share of the property would automatically pass on to your ex wife so I would always advise to look into whether this is the case. If it is, you will need to sever the Joint Tenancy to ensure your 50% is held completely separate from her and is only able to pass through your estate only (ie your own will).
Also, once you have severed the tenancy, you will be able to sell the 50% of the property should you no longer want this. Further info can be found here -https://www.gov.uk/joint-property-ownership/change-from-joint-tenants-to-tenants-in-common
