Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.
Thank you for your patience. usually you would not be entitled to receive housing benefits if you reside in a home of a close relative. As such, if you were to live in the house after it had been bought by your daughter you would not be entitled to housing benefit.
if the house is jointly owned with an ex partner, the presumption is that you would be equally entitled to any interest realized from the property upon its sale. This position may change if you ar able to demonstrate that although his name was on the property is deeds, he made no contribution to it re mortgage payments. What I would recommend here is that you may see whether you could negotiate making som e payments to him, even if not 50 percent.
I hope I answered your question and clarified things for you. Kindly let me know if I may be of further assistance.
