Ask a Spain Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
If your relationship will broke in a future, you have short ways to ask her for the money
All the money and time you spend on the propiet will be lossen if she want not to recognice the debt
Its not aesy to manage, in fact, because the way you have now to assecurate your interest its to ask him / her to recognice the debt in a notario
If he /she recognices the debt he will have to pay if you demand him
But its hard to ask him / her to recognice a debt...
If he / she does not recognice it your way to get your money back will be very hard
I will be here if needed
my question was not about the money or getting it back , rather can she lock me out of the apartment or do i have any rights in Spanish law , as her partner , to stay in the apartment until such time as the case comes to court, as i am sure it will.
No She can no do that
As long as it is you home, the palce where do you live she can no deny the entrance or change the lock
She can no deny the entrance
In order to force youu to go she needs a judicial order
it is my home in that i live here with her but she is the owner. you do understand this.
Its not matter that she owns it
The point its that to deny a person to acess to his own home ( propietor or not ) its a criminal offence in Spain
So, if she does not want you in there she will need a judicial order to force you to go
No matter if there are a price or not, if there is a rent contract or not, its your home, and that it is
