The mortgage is paid off in full, the house is existingly worth approx. £140,000 but was valued at £110,000 before any of the improvements we made. The youngest child is still in full time education just about to go into 6th form. We will take out a new mortgage to buy his half of the house when we decide how to proceed. I juat wanted to know where we stand before I discuss anything with him. From our point there is no imminent rush to buy it other than we don't want to spend much on the house until it is all settled. My partner seems to think that since he has not supported his children in any way since leaving that he is not entitled to half, but I think differently.
Hi Clare thanks for your help, I got it slightly wrong I presumed my partner and her x had taken a mortgage but I have just spoke to her and they bought the house outright and received some European grant money to help renovate the house as it was it a very bad state. Hope this is helpful
their shared savings. My partner Liz has worked and her x used to work on and off also. The house deeds are in their Joint name
