Hello, I am Law Denning and I am a practising solicitor in a High
Street practice. I have been an expert on this website in UK law since 2008.
During that time, as you appreciate, I have answered thousand's of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might not always respond in

It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today. Please bear with me while I gather some further information from you in order for me to be able to advise you fully.

Sorry to be inpaitent, but i leave work shortly and would really like an outcome before i go, Thank you.

Provided the house is
not brought from any assets or savings which would be classed as marital assets
and which you had not declared during the breakup, then he has no claim on
assets which are not marital assets, acquired after the marriage breakup. That
would apply to lottery winnings, inheritance or, in this case, your house.
