Bought a house through foreclosure and auction 31 Oct 2014. Both mum and i are the owners. Joint. 50/50 right? I need help. My brother who is 19 pays board to mum every fortnight of 200. Is it my right as co owner to recoup what I am owed? I can't talk to her. She acts like a damn child and says I have no rights cos the mortgage gets direct debit from her account. I pay her weekly for my share. Always have. I have no bloody money anymore. It's like I'm paying for 4 people now instead of 2. I also have an 8 yr old daughter. I don't go in the lounge room even cos that'd mums friggen domain and i stay in my room all day. My brother said in front of mum he doesn't classify me as owner cos I'm nothing to him. Wtf??? Help me please I want to know my legal rights as joint owner. I'm over it. My meds have gone up and doc gives me 50 valium a month now... Obviously affected but does mum care? Pff. Please help me I was very well manipulated in this and I want my rights.
