Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Can you tell me if your partners name is ***** ***** title (deed)? Is there a mortgage on the property and if so is she the co-borrower?
YES HER NAME IS***** AND THERE IS NO MORTGAGE ON THE HOUSE ALL THE MONEY CAME FROM MY POCKET.
I understand your frustration, I am just trying to ascertain the situation. When this type of situation occurs the issue is that she is a title owner and she is entitled to half of the house. Based on the information you provided she has not contributed to the home and only contributed a small portion to the expenses.
You certainly do not need to buy her out unless it was for a miniscule amount and she provided a quit claim deed transferring the full title to you.
The issue is that you both are on title. Title does not automatically change to your name even though she may be paying no expenses and abandoned the property. The court needs to intervene. You would file a partition action, where the court determines what percentage if any she may own.
Would you like me to provide you with information on partition actions as well as a link for local Attorneys that provide FREE consultations that can assist you with the process?
