As the guidance to the court seems to say that all forseeable income of both parties is included in "pot" and the loss of the house would leave me homeless and unemployed renting would have to be paid out of whatever my share turned out to be which would quickly be used up.
"It shall be the duty of the court in deciding whether to exercise its powers.... to have regard to all the circumstances of the case including the following matters:-
• the income, earning capacity, property and other financial resources which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the foreseeable future.
• the financial needs, obligations and responsibilities which each of the parties to the marriage has or is likely to have in the foreseeable future.
• the standard of living enjoyed by the family before the breakdown of the marriage.
• the age of each party to the marriage and the duration of the marriage.
• any physical or mental disability of either of the parties to the marriage.
• the contributions made by each of the parties to the welfare of the family, including any contribution made by looking after the home or caring for the family.
• the value to either of the parties to the marriage of any benefit (for example, a pension) which ... (by reason of the divorce) ..that party will lose the chance of acquiring."
In ancillary relief proceedings there must always be full disclosure by both parties of their assets in order to enable a calculation of the 'pot' for division to be made.
