I am single and have been living with a couple in their home for about 10 years now, and they want to sell and move. I don't pay rent (because they said that would change their tax), but I have always "offered" and paid the whole of the house bills (electricity, gas bottles, rates, insurance) as my contribution to the house running (as they own it) - oh, as well as my third of groceries etc. Years ago, I even renovated "my" room and ensuite which cost me about $15 000. I know it sounds bad, but I will be on my own now and need to know what my rights under property law are when I talk to them about the house sale. Any advice (even the name of a "reasonable" lawyer) would be welcome.
