What rights do I have when my girlfriend and I bought a house together and it's just her name on the loan? We have been together for 9,10 years and in the house for about 7 or so, maybe longer. She couldn't afford the house with out me and at the time of the loan my credit wasn't good. I have put money into the house and paid 1/2 of the loan for 7+ years. I don't just want to walk away with nothing.
