Good afternoon. The decree only states the property be awarded to her and that the property be sold when our son turns 18. All proceeds be distributed in equitable amounts to each party. There was no agreement for me being compensated for taking over the payments. She wants me to retile all the floors. She expects me to spend three thousand dollars with no reimbursement.
The only damage was the master bedroom floor. I agreed to fix it, but she tore up all the floors and insisted I fix them. One more question# The house has been in default a few times with the instability of my work. I've had to refinance once but she signed off on it. She claims I owe her back money for the default. Does she have the right?? We have never had a agreement with anything concerning the house. S
No money came from her in the refinance. I paid the amount to refinance the house. I paid the downpayment. She claims I owe her equity lost.
No money taken out. Just lower interest rate. But we did do a loan modification a few years prior to the refinance. Is something revalent to her "lost equity" claim?
If the house was behind on the payments when I moved out, am i liable to bring the house current even if she occupies the house now and took over the note?
