Can you tell me how you contributed towards the household please?
Of course. With the property not in your name, you would be able to claim back anything that you have specifically invested in the property. Contributing towards bills and living does not count, but anything that was invested in the property directly does.
It's through trust law that you develop an interest in the asset.
So it will depend on what you can prove, but there is most likely a claim to be made.
I hope this assists?
Yes it should be worth pursuing. Perhaps before you sit down to discuss have a good think about how you might quantify your possible claim, and if there is a figure you would be happy to receive.
Ultimately if you cannot agree then mediation and/ or a court application may be the solution.
I wish you the best of luck.
