1. Does a property need to be in my name in order for me to have an interest in it?

The short answer is no. It is however advisable to seek expert legal help as these type of cases are very facts specific.

2. My name is not on the deeds but I have contributed towards the purchase price of a property. Do I have a claim?

If you have invested money into a property, either by way of contributing towards the purchase price, mortgage payments or renovations, even if you are not the legal owner, you may still have a beneficial interest in the property, or the property may be held on trust for you.

3. I lived with my partner for many years but we were never married. Our home is in my partner’s name but I have contributed towards mortgage payments and bills. Do I have interest in the property?

A property does not need to be in your name in order for you to have an interest in it.
