I left my family home 2.5 years ago with my 2 children due to domestic violence, and my husband refuses to leave or sell house. I am just applying for a divorce as we speak. I am due to be evicted in 2 months as the property I rent has been sold. I am struggling to find an affordable home as renting prices have shot up. I cannot go to council as they say I own a house. What can I do?
Both children have just been diagnosed with autism and this will be the third time of moving in such a short time. My husband is totally unreasonable and will fight tooth and nail to stay in that house.
The house is worth about £300,000. The mortgage is £120,000 but my mum has £100k in the property but this is lodged on the deeds as her money and to be repaid on selling of property or her death (she obviously want her money back now). We have a car each and my husband has his own business - gas heating engineer. We have a timeshare which we paid about 40k for but we can't seem to sell which requires about £1000 per year maintenance fees. My car is a PTP finance deal so really that is the only debt either of us have of bout £9k at present. I earn £18,000 a year, my husbands last tax return was about 35K but he does deal alot in cash and probably earns double that.
When I left the house 2.5 years ago, my husband had a violent episode before and ended up being sectioned by the police under the mental health act. Both children were tramatised. Both daughters then had problems at school, the younger one who is now 8 has social problems and learning difficulties and the older one now 15 went into depression and stopped attending school, she is now in a special school. My life has been a constant roll of hospital, school and authority meetings whilst trying to hold down my job which is why I just couldn't deal or afford a divorce. I now feel that I need to do it and have saved some money to pay for it. Thanks for your help
I don't really want to go back there, so forcing the sale is probably more the issue but then theres not enough equity to provide either of us with a home, this is the question, what would the courts say?
I could only raise about £80k according to mortgage experts now and a 3 bed house is in region of £240,000 upwards in this area.
Not really because house prices are too high
No there hasn't.
