Legal Question

Asked on: 10/03/13, 7:33 am

I bought a house with an ex boyfriend (house is in my name only), we fixed it up together, he did the labor, I paid for materials. We broke up 3 years ago (he moved out). I'm trying to sell the house, does he have any rights to any money if there is a profit?

If you were not married (even common law), then it depends on your agreement. If his work on the house was in exchange for getting to live there, then he is owed nothing. If the agreement was that any profit would be split, then that is the agreement. (If he is not around and not trying to get any money, I would not worry about it.)
