Can my partner claim any proceeds on sale?

Posted on 12 June 2010 by julie

Can my partner claim any of my house if we split up?  He gives me money each week to help with the bills and food, but the mortgage and all the bills are in my name.  He had lived with me for about 2 and a half years.


It is possible that your partner may be able to prove he contributed to the upkeep of the house and make a claim on the sale of the property in the future.

I recommend that you speak to the Citizens Advice Bureau and then seek independent legal advice on this matter.
