Matthew, thank you for the additional information. In regard to her request that you make these repairs, you have no legal obligation to do so, unless of course the need for them, was a result of your own actions. If you damaged them, then you need to repair them. If not and she just wanted them retiled in hopes of renting the home out, it would be her responsibility to do so, as she was awarded the home. It is her obligation to maintain the home and if she is going to rent it out and possible profit off of the property until it is sold, she needs to make these repairs. Of course, if you are willing to do this, you can always ask that you be compensated when the home is sold, since your efforts would be increasing the value of the home. Moreover, I can not see how the retiled floors are a necessity for her to rent the home out, unless it effects the ability of the tenant to actually take possession
of the subject property. In regard to the issue of your mortgage payments while you resided there, you likely would not be able to be compensated for those, since it was your own decision to move back in, when she moved out. Any agreement to be paid back, would have to have been agreed upon ahead of time.
