Customer Question

My partner has recently (past 4 month after 4 years together) become emotionally/verbally abusive towards me. We have a mortgage together & a 1 year old daughter, what are my rights to ask him to move out the family home? He also owns another property which he rents out.

Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
How much would a cheaper two bedroom property in the same area cost to buy?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Clare,


We bought the house in October 2013 for £107k. Due to bender wanting a quick sale we bought at a really good price. It's a 4bed semi. Only needed a mortgage for £78k due to our deposit, less 7 monthly payments current mortgage approx £75-76k.


A 2 bed in this area approx £80k. I would need to move to a 3bed as also have a 7 year old son from previous relationship.

Hi
Where did the deposit come from?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My partner released equity on his other property & put down a £30k deposit. We have a joint tenancy mortgage.

Hi
Ok
How much would a three bedroom terrace cost?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi,


I had a look online yesterday, 3bed terrace house from 69k.


I could afford to live in our current home on my own but I don't know if I could afford to buy my partner out.

Hi
How much would the house sell for now?
What mortgage can you raise?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What do you mean by how much mortgage could I raise? Do you mean in relation to buying a new home? I really don't have any idea? What would give an indication of this?


I've put all my savings into this house: new boiler, rewired electrics, New carpets throughout & new fitted kitchen. However, next door has just sold for 115k & that's 3 bedroomed. Maybe we could get 120-125k for this one, but that's just guess work without an actual valuation.


Do I not have any rights to ask him to leave & I remain here with the kids until they at least complete school or is that 'old school'?
