A Fin24 user wants to know if his assets will be subject to accrual claims in the event of a divorce.

He writes: I am a divorcee and I am about to get married again. I have a property which I bought five years ago, and I am renting it out under my name. My future spouse and I have agreed to marry out of community of property, with accrual.

I want to know if she will be able to claim accrual on my current property later if it comes to a divorce.
