Hi
Does the letter also suggest and immediate sale?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No. We had agreed to put the house on the market after Christmas as the plan was to sell and go our separate ways, she is not in a financial position to buy me out and is unable to get a mortgage either. She runs her childminding business from our home . This brings her in an income of 4k a month which goes into her own bank account , we have a joint bank account for bills.
