No children living with us. My partner has grown up children who live away.
His name only appears on the title.
No, I didn't contribute to the initial financing. This was my partner's 'buy to let' of ehich I was not a part.
I'm sure I would have paid more in rent unless I shared a rental property.
Not sure what you mean, but this is a repayment mortgage.
I had a bath put into the property at a cost of £450.
Hope this helps.
Thank you. XXXXX just finish by having one thing clarified; am I right in thinking then, that as a common law partner I have no more rights to the property than, say, a lodger would, unless I'd either; paid capital in initially, made significant improvements which increased saleability or paid more than my partner into the house/household? This third point must only be pertinent to partners, though, surely, because a lot of tenants pay
significantly more towards mortgages in rent (?)
