I believe there is left than £20,000 outstsanding on the mortgage. They moved into the property 15 years ago .
It was valued at £360,000 in September this year.
I forgot to say they were also never married .
That would be the ideal solution but she is refusing to entertain the idea. She still sees it as her house and her 'family' home. Even though she choose to leave.
She turns up at the property whenever she chooses whether her sons are there or not , which is meant to be the reason for her visiting - and she is taking my partners mail away , going through his personal stuff , and has on a number of occassions become aggressive and abusive because she has a problem with him now being in a serious relationship.
He would have to remortgage and we have discussed this as an ideal solution . We could afford to do this jointly which is what he would like to do
Christmas morning she went to attack him and their sons had to restrain her and he left the house.
She apologises later and states that they should all understand that she is having difficulties emotionally coming to terms with him being in a new relationship even though this has been going on for over a year.
She does work .
My partner has not claimed anything because I think to be honest he was fairly traumatised when she left ( she left him for one of his good friends) and he was having difficulty coping with everything and did not want the additional stress.
He felt he could provide for him and the boys and keep the house going and just didn't want any more 'arguments ' with her.
