Macclesfield Express - - HOMES - MAR­RIAGE SPLIT

Daniels LLP So­lic­i­tors WHEN I left my hus­band I al­ways as­sumed we’d divide our pos­ses­sions equally – in­clud­ing the house. But he bought it be­fore we mar­ried, and he now tells me that since the house wasn’t in joint names I’ve no claim on it. SEE a solic­i­tor so that a ‘charge’ can be put on the prop­erty pre­vent­ing your hus­band from sell­ing it or bor­row­ing against it with­out your knowl­edge. You can cer­tainly make a claim on the house: a solic­i­tor will ad­vise you about the like­li­hood of suc­cess depend­ing on a num­ber of fac­tors – whether chil­dren are in­volved, your re­spec­tive earn­ing ca­pac­i­ties now and in the fu­ture, your re­spec­tive needs, obligations and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, the length of the mar­riage, and the con­tri­bu­tions you have made both to the prop­erty and the mar­riage, and so on.
