Hi,

I have a house in Spain that I paid for but it is in mine and my partners names.

Our relationship has come to an end, I was foolish to put the property in our names rather than just mine when I paid for it. Is she now entitled to half the house?

Thanks

Hello


She is certainly entitled to half the house if she is a joint owner with you, holding a 50% share. Nevertheless, you can file Court claim for half of the house maintenance expenses, providing you can prove ( by documented evidences ) she paid nothing or too little towards it, leaving the responsibility entirely on you.

The same happened to me with a house I bought in France, I was such a fool. So many problems when I divorced my wife. I hope you got the house.
