What is my partner entitled to if we part company?

20th Feb 2020

My partner has been contributing to the mortgage for around six years. The mortgage is in my name as I purchased the house from the council. I have lived in the house 25 years and my partner had his own property when I met him. He was not entitled to be on the mortgage as he had not resided in my home long enough. He has now got himself into a situation where he owes a substantial amount of money to someone.

This has put myself and my family into a vulnerable place and I am now trying to get advice as to what he would be entitled to if we part (I think this will be inevitable). I need to be prepared for the future and do not want find myself in a position where I lose everything due to another persons stupidity.

Could you please advise?
