Hi Lynda,

 

Is he to contribute rent?

 

Is he to contribute directly to the mortgage?

 

Will he spend money on carrying out improvements to the property that will increase it's value?

he will give me a sum of money each month which will go towards bills, food. I do not have a mortgage. No he will not put any money into the property to improve its value

 

thanks

Solicitor: Thomas, Solicitor replied 6 years ago

Okay.

 

In that case you should make sure that the amount he gives you each month is not more than the amount he would otherwise have to pay were he to rent privately.

 

Provided this is the case, no capital improvements to the property are made by him, there are no children of the relationship and you do not take a loan of money from him then he would not be advised that he would have a claim on your property. Any application to establish a claim on the property is a very expensive application to make in any event.

 

Provided the reality of his occupation of the property does not differ from the above then you will be fine.

 

A cohabitation agreement setting out agreed arrangement for his occupation would be a sensible thing to do. It would detail his occupation, confirm that he is not to acquire an interest in the property and set out what each party's responsibilities/rights are (eg. household expenses, items acquired during the cohabitation, what is to happen following separation). It would cost in the region of £300.00 +VAT for solicitor to prepare for you.

Hi

 

I am unsure about the £22 to pay I thought it was £2, or did i read it incorrectly

I don't deal with billing I'm afraid; I'm a solicitor and an expert here.

 

It would not be £2 though, so I can only assume it was £22.00

 

If you are happy I would be grateful if you would click accept.


Kind regards,


Tom
