Customer Question

My husband has apparently filed for bankruptcy. He has also begun divorce proceedings against myself. He owns a property which currently has tenants in. The property has a tracker mortgage of £120 per month, and the rental income is £575 per month.
The tenants are on a rolling contract which they can be given 30 days notice to move out.
I have asked to take over the property and pay the mortgage payments on his behalf. We have two young daughters, one 9 and the other 3. We do not currently have anywhere to live, and we have no family we can live with.
My husband says his solicitor claims because of his impending bankruptcy the property will go back and therefore I cannot live there.
The property is currently in negative equity. He has owned it for 8/9 years. He is an employed police officer who earns £34,500 per year.
Is what I'm being told correct, that the house will be repossessed and I cannot live in it?
