The house is worth about £400,000 and there was never a mortgage. It was a cash purchase. They were not married but had been engaged. He always referred to the property as his house although she was the full time occupier/housekeeper/homemaker as he works on the motorways and is away for up to 2 weeks at a time coming home for a few days and then going off to his caravan/work place again. They have 2 Labrador dogs and therefore she is also the chief dog walker. He had been seeing someone else. The "other woman" has "internet stalked" my daughter and pretended to be an old school friend on "Facebook". She eventually admitted her identity and subjected my daughter to verbal abuse. This made my daughter too ill to cope with her nursing employment for several months. She returned to work on reduced hours only one week ago and now he has told her to leave. Because of her reduced hours she would not be able to support herself/pay a mortgage or rent a reasonable place to live.
There are no one bedroom studio properties in this area, and she has her son to consider as he will become homeless too.
We are in a rural area. Her work as a nurse is based in Cheltenham but she travels to do clinics and visits in many areas of Gloucestershire. I think £150,000 would be a minimum plus legal costs. She wouldn't be able to live in a studio property because of the two dogs that he says are hers although it was him that wanted the dogs originally.
A one bedroom apartment/flat in Cheltenham would be much more expensive.
