Right Of Joint Owners Over The Property

Before divorce I had bought a house, where almost 65% was paid by my then in-laws. Remaining 35% we had availed loan on joint names. Post divorce outstanding loan amount was paid off by my ex-wife. The house was registered jointly in the name of myself and my then wife. What kind of legal right do I have on that property?

In such situation get the market price of the entire property and you can divide the property equally. As entire amount is paid by ex-wife, it is not necessary that property belongs to wife. You can claim a half share in the property.
