Finances

“My name’s not on the title deeds to our house and we are not married, but I will still get half as we have lived together as husband and wife.”

Not necessarily. The first thing the party whose name is not on the title deeds should do is register a caution to protect their interests with the Land Registry. This will ensure that nothing can happen to their interest until an agreement has been reached with their ex -partner over the equity in the house. This area of law is complicated and specialist advice should be sought as to what entitlement you are likely to achieve. It may not be half, even if you have contributed financially.
