Hi there,
I have been living with my partner for just over a year now. He previously sold his house and bought another one - that I am contributing to paying off. It's only a relatively small mortgage - around 60k - I am contributing $4, 000 per month (to help pay off quicker).

So far I have paid him approx $45k. If I leave now - do I have any access to reclaim this contribution in a property settlement? I live in Melbourne.

Thanks :)
