Hi. Were due to have our property valued for sale (or just settled as exs name is on the title). Bit of background, both names are on title. Ex lived at property for less than 3 months. No financial contributions were made. All money (deposit and mortgage payments have always been made by me).
From what i understand none of that matters (as in who made the payments till now) but my question is this " the property needs some urgent plumbing repairs done but if I pay for that will the cost be added to the pool once monies are divided or should I wait at the risk of more damage to the house
