I am from Australia and moved to Sweden with my girlfriend who is Swedish. After two years of living in Sweden i decided to sell my house in Australia and buy a vacation house in Sweden. I put 1.2 million SEK of my money and she put in 200.000 SEK.
We lived in the middle of the city, but when we bought the summer house I registered as living in the summer house. She was registered and lived in our apartment in town, so we had like a särbo-relation. We started to have many problems after the birth of our child and I decided it was good for us to have some space, so I practically moved to the summer house.
Now 5 years later we are separating and she wants me to sign a “bodelning” in which it is stated that we bought this house with the intention to be a permanent residence, which is not true. She works in the city and our son goes to school in the there, so for them to live in our summer house would have been impossible as it is 1 hour drive south.
I have found out that the reason she wants to claim that it is a permanent house is because a fritidshus is not a part of the 50/50 sambo law you have here in Sweden.
My question is: do I need to give her 50% of the value of the house despite me putting 6 times more deposit money? Please be aware that it is a fritidshus and not a permanent residence
