Looking for general advice as I have not been to a solicitor yet.
I have been married for just over a year - we lived in my rented flat when we first married and the bought a house but it was bought just in my husbands name. He is now saying that the house is his and he can sell it without my concent. I think I am registerd on the documents at the Land Registarty but do not know for sure and do not want to ask my husband.
Also we have renovated the property and it is now worth substantially more than we paid. He is saying he "might" give me some money from the profit but also he "might not" - where do I stand. He has paid the mortgage but I have paid all the bills etc.
along as you can prove you have put in to the house in any way you will be entitled to something, may not be much because you haven''t owned the property for long,but is still a 50 50 share, esp if you were married when it was purchased. what you have to think about is,will it cost him more to fight him for it than you will get!!!
See a sol,but u should get something iam sure.xx
You should contact the Land Registry and register your matrimonial home rights. That way, even if the house is entirely in his name he can''t sell it without your agreement. Given that your marriage is so short, you won''t get a full half share, but you might well be able to make a case for half the change in the value.
