So I recently broke up with my partner of just under 3 years together.
In November last year we bought a house together. Now the break up has been pretty amicable and I thought we had come to the arrangement of splitting the house and signing a partnership agreement and continuing using it as a rental property. I wanted to come to a mutual agreement before going to the lawyers to sign it off.
Now I think her family has gotten hold of her and want her to try and force me to sell her my half of the property, I got a feeling there are some hefty lawyer fees incoming.
- The house is in both our names
- We went in to the house as equals and all our income was combined
- She earned slightly more than me over the last year ~5k more
- our relationship was less than 3 years so the Property Act does not apply
Has anyone else been through something similar and know the possible outcomes?
P.S. I know I will be needing a lawyer, but I'm sure there are some of you that have been through something similar and can tell em how it turned out for you.
