Well we think a 1 bedroom property might be got for about £130kish, but she wants a ground floor one as we have dogs. Can she demand this? Is there any limit as to how far she moves away, as it is an expensive area, and could be cheaper say 20 miles away.
I clear about £2100 a month, and the monthly bills on the current house are about £900 per month, so if I buy her out I will need to take out a further mortgage which for £75K will be about £600 i think?
We have been married some 14 years although have lived seperate lives for many years, and indeed have seperate rooms.
Hope this helps
Well her brother lives about 4 miles away, her mother is about 80 miles away and her father lives overseas.
She does some charity work in tunbridge wells, but does no think she can work as she gets streesed very easily. This is not helped by a serious alochol problem (2 bottles wine per night) an also she is on anti depresseants for many years
Well a ground floor fat round here is about £130,000 if you can find one to be honest
If I was to rent her a flat which might cost £700 per month lets say, would I then be expected to pay her monthly bills? I was hoping that if I paid this rent it could come out of the lump sum from the house she is entitled to, but would at least mean we could move on?
Just one thought, the fact that I will have to raise a mortgage to buy this propertry for her from the martial home, I am assuming the courts will not expect me to pay her maintenance as well, as I cant afford to do this as well?
Sorry Claire, would a court except any property brought for her, eg a basic one bed flat, also 70% of the equity might not be enough to buy a property in the local area, so what happens then, as she cannot get a mortgage?
