    Default Non Registered Domestic Partner Rghts to House

    My question involves real estate located in the State of: California

    My ex and I are general partners in a business I started, we lived together for 9 years but were not registered as domestic partners nor married. He bought the house we lived in for 8 years prior to purchase (I paid half the rent), and I gave him $$ towards downpayment. The house is in his name. I also invested many hours to help renovate after the purchase. Do I have any rights in regards to the house? thank you!

    I don't believe that you do. You might have a claim for the money you gave him towards the down payment or renovations or that money might just be considered to be rent for the period of time you lived there after he purchased it.

    As far as I can tell, this fact is irrelevant to the situation at hand.

    Unless you are your ex are gay men or at least one of you is over 62, you could not be registered domestic partners.

    At the other site where you posted about this, you claimed that this was a loan. Was the loan memorialized by a writing signed by your ex? If not, will he agree that it was a loan and not a gift? If not, how will you prove it was a loan and not a gift?

    No, unless you had a contract that gave you such rights.
