Provided the house isnot brought from any assets or savings which would be classed as marital assetsand which you had not declared during the breakup, then he has no claim onassets which are not marital assets, acquired after the marriage breakup. Thatwould apply to lottery winnings, inheritance or, in this case, your house.
