Good evening to you, I'm Lea and I am going to assist you today.
Did you have a deed of trust to protect your deposit in the event of a split?
Are you married?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
In that case the starting point is a 50/50 split of any equity. If the matter ended up in court, you might be able to persuade the court that you paid for everything and therefore should be entitled to a larger share, but usually the legal costs element prevent most people from going down this route as it is likely to swallow up any benefit you may (and it is only 'may') get from asking the court to decide.
You can, of course, negotiate a different settlement between the two of you.
No, none at all unless it is an agreement in writing.
I do caution you on taking legal action however - if the sums are as little as £30k, you could very easily find that is eaten up in legal fees...and the loser will likely pay the other party's legal costs too.
That choice is always yours.
You're very welcome.
Yes, it's not easy in your circumstances. But the law does provide for you to anticipate this with a deed of trust.
Something to remember for the future.
All the best to you.
I'm afraid that isn't my area of law, you'll need to post it in a new thread.
Thank you for using Just Answer.
All the best.
