Hi and thank you for your reply, my grandchildren are 9 and 7 divorce proceedings have not been instigated, the house is valued at about £225000 and the outstanding mortgage is £150000. She does not want my son to move out of his home. but she has been advised that the council may insist as he has an obligation to house his children. He obviously cannot afford the mortgage, support for the children and then rent and bills on another property for himself
Its an ex council house and they are all about the same 3 bed £225/£250
No he wouldn't be able to, are you thinking to let her rent the house from him? and DSS pay the rent, this wouldn't be allowed as they would class it as a Contrived tenancy
Hi and thank you again for your reply. My son owned a flat again in his sole name before she came into his life and he sold this to buy the house. He managed to get the flat due to a savings policy which paid the deposit I started for him when he was a baby and it matured when he was 21. She has never contributed towards the mortgage or anything in the house, in fact if anything she landed my son in debt due to a compulsive gambling problem. She then walked out on him taking his children and moved nearly 200 miles away so he can only see his children every two weeks. So please tell me why she would be entitled to 50% of my sons house. She obviously didn't see it as the marital home, she had an affair, and now that has gone wrong why should my son have to pay for it.
