  1. I am asking generally as I can see things going this way if I'm honest. Embarrassingly I have been married around 13 months after a 6 year relationship and we bought a property Feb 2017. Mother in law provided £60K as gifted deposit (proof that it was non returnable) and Wife provided £100K that was gifted to her by her mother. We set the TR1 up as tenants in common 70% her way and 30% mine due to the fact that she provided roughly a third of the houses value upfront and then we went halves on the mortgage. We also setup with a solicitor that the first £100k of the sale of the house would go to my mother in law to cover renovations she's paid for. Now I have strong evidence my wife is carrying on with a work colleague (been seen out, tracked to his house, shes hiding messages and always on the phone). Am I right in saying that if we divorce and the house sells, given that it'll be worth around £420k the following is correct: Value - £420k Mortgage O/S - £200K MIL - £100K Remaining = £120K The remainder would be split 70/30 based on the TR1? I hope this is the case as wife has put me in a bad situation but equally herself by messing around so soon into the mortgage. She's indicating that a solicitor has told her that her £100k investment would come off first but that makes no sense as we have paid the mortgage 50/50 and the TR1 would be a pointless exercise. Hope this makes sense and someone can offer something before I seek legal advice.
  2. Thanks for the replies. It is indeed an electric shower and an expensive one at that. It operates at a minimum of 1.5 bar, the shower that was present before this was a straight mixer and it gave good pressure. I understand that the pressure could be related to the fact that the flow would likely be restricted as it needs to heat up the water first but there is no heat whatsoever, the pressure does change slightly however when changing the temperature to cold. The electrician is a fully qualified individual who has gained all qualifications through a local housing body which is where he works, my father is a retired electrical fitter who has had a look also and he has confirmed it's wired correctly and power is getting to the correct places. The boiler is not pressurised as it's an old house and is gravity fed from up stairs. This is the shower an AQUAS AquaMax Flex Manual X-Jet 9.5KW Full Chrome Electric Shower (can't submit link due to post count).
  3. Hi All, I am new here and looking to draw on your wealth of knowledge. I bought a shower from Victorian Plumbing around 6 months ago that was not fitted until around 8 weeks ago, on having the shower fitted my plumber informed me that although following the instructions to the letter the shower pressure was rubbish despite it being great without the shower attached and the water was not heating up. I complained to VP and they eventually replaced the unit but only after around 6 weeks of too and fro'ing with the manufacturer and not getting anywhere. The problem I have now is that the replacement is displaying the exact same issues. Wondering whether the installation was the issue I had an electrician check it over and he told me to get an engineer out as the power was getting to the unit but the heater element was not warming up at all. Now I have decided to go direct to the manufacturers website and email them asking for an engineer visit, they responded asking for a number of pictures but have not since replied other than to tell me they are chasing the manufacturer. This has been ongoing for around 9/10 weeks now and I'm at the end of my tether. What would you recommend I do from here?
