My wife left me and I'm having building work done on the house at the moment that I am paying for. We are not yet divorced. The house is in my name, will she get a cut of the increased value of the house? We've been married 1.5 years - no kids and the house is in my name. The value of the house should be calculated up to the day she left.
Titch...short marriage, no kids, your house...she will get whatever she put in so think you will not have to part with too much...dont quote me though
go on calculator on here will give you a guestimate
Thanks for your quick answer - she just paid her share of the bills, telephone and electric ect...during her stay. No mortgage and the house has gone up about £80,000 since we were married. So should she get £40,00 for doing nothing? We did co-habit for 5 years in the same house before getting married.
