I have been with my partner for six years. After two years I bought a house in my name. My partner had a bankruptcy and could not be on the mortgage. My parents have given and loaned me money for many things. The money from my parents went towards building a new barn. If I were to break up with my partner and he made a claim to the property would he also have claim to the barn on the same property?
So if I received 100,000 from my parents to build my barn and my partner only contributed 2,000, can my partner can make a claim for half of the value? My partner is not contributing fairly financially to the mortgage--even though he has made more money than me. He spends his money and then spends my money or "borrows" money from me and never repays it anymore. I am always in the hole with his spending.
It seems like your answer to my original question leads to other aspects dealing with the same question. Is there anyway you can tell me where to go to read all the information dealing with common law partner break ups for Alberta? The Act/Law?
