Response: You are correct. She is not being fair here. She wants you to give her half of the loan you obtained to redo the house but does not want to discuss that your disability payments were used for her shop. The reasonable thing to do here would be for you to keep the house without giving her anything else for the house because you have already spent your disability payments on her shop and in exchange she would get the store and the lot. If both of you do not reach agreement, then the properties would be divided by the Court pursuant Montana Code Title 40 Chapter 4 Section 40-4-202.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
