Hi
Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following using the same numbering:-
1. Who is named as registered proprietors on the registered title to the property
2. Are the interests held as joint tenants or tenants in common
3. Is there a declaration of trust declaring each party’s interests in the property
Kind regards.

Hi,

You stated that you bought the house, how is it that they (and not you) came to be registered as proprietors.

Kind regards,

Tom
