What is the legal position regarding a house in joint names when there is a break up between partners. There are 2 children, aged 8 and 10. The 8 year old is severely autistic. Would the house have to be sold or could my daughter continue to live there with the children. The majority of the purchase price of the house was from my daughter. Thankyou for any help you can give. Barbara XXXXXX
I think the house is worth about £300,000 and there is £100,000 left on the mortgage.
They have no savings and have taken out a loan of £10,000.
Their joint income is roughly £20,000 - £25,000
My daughter earns£14-15,000 and her partner earns about £10,000
My daughter had been left £75, 000. They had sold a cottage in Yorkshire which had been bought largely by the sale of my daughter's flat.
They have lived in the house for 5 years. Can I now have an answer, please?
Still no reply to my question. This is poor service.
