Hi tootsie and welcome to the forum.

If only your name was on the contract of sale and the property is now registered in your name, I would have thought that your friend is going to have a difficult time getting anything.

However, I suggest that you morally need to repay him the amount he invested.

Hi tootsie

I think the best he can do is bring a civil action against you in the court. Whether he will be prepared to 'invest' in such an action is another matter - it will be expensive and the outcome cannot be guaranteed.

Tootsie,

if only your name is on the deeds, he can take a run and jump. if you are not married, he is entitled to nothing. Morally, he should not have been cheating on his wife, so you have nothing to feel guilty about. Any legal action takes a very long time in Cyprus. If he hasn't contributed to the upkeep, utilities or anything else, but has used ther property for a holiday home, it's fair to assume he has used up his input.

Anyway, you not need worry your self, he cannot stop you doing what you want with it, you don't need him for any signatures in case you sell, upto you if you want to give him anything.

Good luck.

Thank you for your input,
he as not paid anything towards the utility bills , or the gardener, or the communial feees,
and your right he lied to me and said he was not married, or i do not think i would have let him put anything into it, , but i hope lucky for me, everything is in my name, and he even as not got a key to the house,
regards tootsie
Good luck.

Dear Nigel,
regarding my property, he as come back from cyprus, and as told me he as registered a interest in the property,
how can he do this, he as nothing abou the property only one letter from solicitor over her in uk,
if he as done this, it is outrages , as anyone can go do this,
if he wants interest on my property, i think he must pay for half the title deeds, which cost me 13000 pounds,
regards

It is possible he has managed to log a MEMO or DISPUTE against your title if he had any evidence to prove he had a vested interest.

You could go to the land registry and enquire, you may have to fill out an N50 form for a search to see what comes up. Better to wait for the notification and see, he may be bluffing.

If he has managed to log either of these items you will need him to lift them in order to make a transfer. Depends what he is claiming.
