Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I’m afraid I cannot see the previous question so I’m answering this from scratch.

To be honest, I can see no reason why not subject to the Limitation Act 1980 which limits such claims to 6 years IF your ex raises it as a defence.

Otherwise, when the property gets sold all that rental income that your ex got and all the mortgage payments that you made could go into the pot when deciding who gets what.
