Not strictly a debt question, but when you buy a house the solicitor will advise you about your options.

When you marry or live with someone and they contribute to your household either financially or in any other way they build up an interest in your property.

In the case of divorce (or bankruptcy which is more my area) there is a case that they are due money from your property in respect of their contribution over the years.

Its a minefield though and you really need some advice from a solicitor.
