Just looking for some helpful information or for somebody to point us in the right direction.. My partner, when he was 18 years old, was convinced by his parents to go into a home loan with just his name and his dad's name to help the family so they didn't have to rent anymore. They had said, when he wanted to they will return him the first home owners grant and stamp duty that was invested and what was fair and his name be removed from the home loan. Unfortunately he didn't realise the case is not so simple.. The spoken agreed amount was taken from his account into his mother's account (he was under the belief he was paying his share of mortgage / etc). When he finally confronted them (it's been quite a few years..) they say that he has only been paying 'rent' all these years and nothing more. And if he wants to leave they will just pay him the first home owners grant only but haven't bothered to follow through. We've since found out that previously they have moved their other loans, cars/boats/bikes, etc onto the home loan. He has approached them several times to have his name released and fairly paid off, but they keep delaying and making excuses why it can't happen and that he is just trying to take their money. To top things off, his mother is unemployed, his father as of a couple weeks ago (after having multiple conversations with them before hand) has just retired. Any helpful suggestions would be much appreciated ..
