Pompano Beach, FL asked in Real Estate Law for Florida

Q: My home is in my BF’s name. I contributed to the down payment I also pay half of the mortgage. Do I have any rights ?

It’s one year this month we moved in. I even signed a paper stating I split the mortgage with him. I just want to know if I can be entitled to something not 50/50 .

A: You may be entitled to reimbursement for your financial contributions and any improvements you made to the home. Keep detailed records of all payments and contributions in the event you are required to take legal action for reimbursement.
