I would suggest he sell his house, and reimburse you for any expenses you incurred for it. Since he apparently didn't contribute to house 2, he should have no claim to it, but as I see it, you certainly have claim to at least part of house 1. Certainly not equitable that you fixed up the place and now he gets it all without cost or consequence.

It'll probably take some diligent digging up of receipts and CC statements, (hopefully they still exist,) to prove your case, but I would think a competent attorney should be able to argue your validity.

Any debt other than household should be attributed to the person responsible for making it, and assigned accordingly.

The most important part, of course, is you are rid of him. Good for you!
