UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Do you own a property? If so please state who is the registered proprietor.
If your partner is not named as registered proprietor of the property then the position is that unless your partner has either contributed to the initial financing of the purchase of the property, or spent capital sums on improvements to the property which has increased its value or paid more in rent/expenses than she would otherwise have paid in private rented accommodation then she would not be advised to consider making a claim against the equity in the property.
Such an application is quite expensive too.
Property you owned solely prior to the relationship remains your own. Property jointly bought during the relationship is jointly owned and should be split.
