UK Family Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Could you clarify exactly what it is that you wish to achieve
Will you be a joint owner of the property?
But the plan is that you will be?
Would you wish to point an end point on the payments if the relationship fails?
I assume you would wish to be able to force a sale if need be?
This is not a matter to undertake lightly as you could be committing yourself to a payment for an indeterminate length of time
The only way of doing this is to create a contract - which would be enforceable no matter what happened between you
One way that this would be safe for you is if it was expressed as a lump Sum payment, payable by instillments to secure you a beneficial interest in the property.
You could perhaps look at 20% of the cost payable over five years - but the actual details would depend on price deposit etc.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
