They both paid part of the down payment.
They never lived in the house, it was bought for him.
No written agreement about when the house sold except the normal house paperwork that states my husband owns half and they own the other half.
The parents kept all the rent because they said that is what they were doing, they just kept it. No written agreement or anything or even discussion about it.
Spouse paid the mortgage payments for 6 years while living there only as his parents went off on their own and put money from an inheritance they got one the house so mortgage was paid off,no discussion around this either,they just went and did it and no written agreement or anything on this either.
Basically they just did whatever they wanted with the house, told husband after the fact, sometimes months or years after the fact.
Husband didn't pay anymore mortgage due to them keeping all the rent which works out to more than what the mortgage was. Also the house value increased so when sold got quite a bit more than what it was bought for. His parents also want every dime they put into the house for maintenance which is not much and refuse to give husband money he spent on maintenance while we lived there. If they kept all the rent do they not have to maintain the rental? Is that not the cost of business? So not only do they want every cent they put into that house back but they also say he owes them a bunch of money that was gifted to him and no paperwork or documentation on at all. Any money my husband put into the house is not being considered or counted.
They are very controlling, don't discuss anything with him and just do whatever they want to, this is what they have always done. Now that the house has sold they want all the money basically even though he is half owner.
