Hi

I have tenants in common ownership on a house I bought with my now husband. As it was an inheritance between him and his sister, and we were only buying out her half, he said he already owned half so wanted 75% ownership and me 25%. However since buying I have paid 50% of the mortgage and 50% of all costs relating to the house.  We now have about $400k worth of equity due to renovations we did.

Out of interest I would like to know where I stand if;

1 - We ever divorce

2 - Either of us passes away (I heard with this type of title the ownership will not necessarily pass to me if he passes away)
