Hello

Need more info:
How long lived together?
Any kids?
Property is only in his name? Or Joint?
Apart from payment of furnishing / non financial contributions, any other financial contributions? How did you come up with the deposit for the home?

Hello
No claim sadly.
De facto begins 2 years cohabitation, no kids, property in his name.
Commercially, there is no point going to court, as the legal fees alone would far outweigh the outcome at best you would receive.
Rental payments mean little really.

I know the above is not what you want to hear, but I do not want to mislead you.

I wish to help you in this situation.
