A daughter had the downpayment for a house, at the time of purchasing the house she could not qualify on her own. She needed her mother’s help and now ...The house is “owned” by the mother and daughter on paper. The daughter paid the entire down payment on her own the mother didn’t contribute a single penny. It was a temporary arrangement that the mother would live with the daughter... it has since been 10 years.The mother has never made a mortgage payment, she does not pay for electricity, water or renovations.nor has she ever paid rent. She lives on the 3 rd floor of the home and contributes nothing. She refuses to leave because she “owns” the house. How can the daughter get her out of the home without paying her any money.The mother says she will leave if she gets $100,000 ...She has never contributed to the mortgage or to any bills of the house in 10 years.

This is general advice, not based upon any particular case, fact or law: seek individual legal advice. I can only answer generally and cannot offer an opinion about your case. If you want an objective opinion or to interview with a lawyer, check out many lawyers on the internet like our firm who offer free consultations on contingency files. You can also phone the Law Society Lawyer Referral Service directly at 1-855-947-5255 or 416-947-5255 (within the GTA), Monday - Friday, between 9 am - 5 pm. They will provide 3 names of lawyers who handle cases like yours. Good Luck! Hamoody Hassan, Senior Counsel, http://www.hassanlaw.com
