I think in my area the house is going to go up so I fear doing that and really don’t want to be paying repayments with his name on the title. My lawyer is drafting that draft I’ll let you know what it says . Few disputes about fictitious comments like “doing all the cleaning” such bull!! And to say I stayed at his of a weekend back in Sydney. Unsure how relevant when we weren’t living together for two years and in the eye of the court isn’t that what they look at length living together ??There are court application costs - If he applies HE pays. Not all that sure about this stuff. But yeah if he wants his $$ now he'll need to apply to court. Look there is a small issue. Settlement is done at time of settlement, not time of separation. So you could hold out for 2 years. And if you can I suggest you do. So the $$ will have changed in 2 years and the asset division will be done base on those numbers. BUT I reckon that will work for you. It is possible the house will be worth less then than now. And if you're the only one whose contributed to the loan in all that time it assists in establishing the case that his contributions have been fcuk all.
I'd be writing back 8K take it or take you to court. Keep it simple.
