We represented an unmarried gentleman in a property dispute. The client jointly owned a valuable property with his ex-partner; however had moved out many years ago when they separated.
Our client had paid the mortgage and other household bills during the relationship and had continued to do so 1 year after the relationship breakdown.
We assisted him to extract his share of the equity in the property in the most cost-effective manner possible. Offer letters were constructed early on, but it was necessary to enter the court process to maintain the pressure on the opponent and keep the momentum going.
Through sensible negotiations a Final Hearing could be avoided with a great saving to the client.
