So I had to payoff bike, 6,478.00. out of my inheritance. so I could get loan to buy house. can I get him to buy me out of owning bike?

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your break-up.

Yes, you can. Since both names are ***** ***** bike, you're both legal owners. You each have a right to use and enjoy it, and that means, by default, it stays with whoever already has it. You have no obligation to turn it over to him without him paying you half the value. This is true even if he was making the payments before, unless you had something in writing that said he would get the bike outright once it was paid off.

He has no rights to the house whatsoever, since it's in your name only.
