Disputes between unmarried partners
Many unmarried partners on separation need to deal with jointly-owned property, resolve their interest in properties to which they have contributed, and settle the financial arrangements for children.
If the property is owned in joint names, it is presumed that each owner is entitled to 50% of the money released on a sale. However, sometimes other considerations mean that the position will not be so simple. If the property is in your partner’s name, but you have contributed towards the deposit and mortgage, you may be entitled to a share in the property. Whatever the situation, it is important to get specialist advice from a solicitor as soon as you can.
