I may soon be a single parent, obviously I’d like to provide for my family but things are not working out.
I’ve worked hard over the years and solely own a property with just myself on the mortgage. My partner over the years only pays for the shopping as our plan was for her to save up money and we’re go on a joint adventure and make a new home.
Things are rocky at the moment. if we split up, I’d like to help as much as I can but am wondering if she’ll be able to take any money from the house I own? She pays for no bills or the mortgage. Just the regular food shops.
Even if her name wasn’t on the mortgage for the time she has lived there it has been the family home and she has been contributing to the household expenses and so could be entitled to a share. it would be advisable to speak to a solicitor.
