Can I keep my house was created by Kn28655
Hi,

My partner and I are separating after 7.5yrs. We have a 3yr old.

When we got together I had a house and he moved in approx 2 years in to our relationship. He came into the mortgage approx 2rs ago. There was no payment of any consideration to go onto the mortgage.

Now we are separating, my choice, and he is finding it difficult to accept and has now got angry and told me he won't let me keep the house.

Where do I stand? As he has paid nothing other than bills/mortgage? I don't want to sell and can afford to take on the mortgage useless. Can I force him to let me? Will I have to buy him out, or worse still is he entitled to half?

Thanks in advance

Are you married?

Who does Land Registry have listed as the owner?

No we're [url=Resources/Library/Cohabitation-and-Separation_s33_m1852.html ]not married[/url].

I think the deeds were changed to both our names from just mine but can't find a copy of them which I assume would have been sent through, so hoping that it didn't happen.

You can check the land registry to see whose name is on the deeds.
