Since you are not married and the property is not in your name or at least partially in your name, generally speaking, you would not have any claim to any of the profits from that particular property. Your only chance to share in the profit of that property, would be if you could prove a universal partnership.
The elements of that a party need to prove in order to prove a universal partnership is:
* That the partnership has been entered into for the benefit of both parties;
* That the partnership has been entered into for the purposes of yielding a profit;
* That both parties made a contribution to the partnership (whether monetary or otherwise); and
* That the contract must be valid.
If you can prove that this exists and such a partnership has been formed, no party to the partnership may:
* use the joint property of the partnership to the exclusion of the other partner from the control of such property;
* make use of the partnership property without the other partner's authorisation and make personal use of same;
* alienate, encumber and or dispose of any partnership property without the other party's consent.
The effects of this partnership will be similar to that of a marriage in community of property.
The partnership will end:
* If one of the parties predeceases the other; or
* By agreement; or
* By insolvency of one of the partners.
I know that this is probably not the answer that you have hoped for, however, I hope that you can still get some value out of it. I try my best to provide you with a legally sound and accurate answer and however much it pains me, it is not always good news.
