Just an update...
I went to another real estate lawyer, just to gather more information before seeing the original lawyer who handled the purchase of our house.

He was of the opinion that, in the event of a split, the 25% share would go to my boyfriend, despite the fact that I came up with the complete downpayment and can prove it. He indicated that the 'legal presumption' would be that the 25% share was a 'gift' to my boyfriend...

He suggested the name of a litigation lawyer, but also thought that if push came to shove, we would be making two lawyers very happy. Not sure how to proceed with this information...
