Resolved Question:

I am going through separation with my wife. We have sold our house and I expect approx £150000 half share. The sale has not gone through yet. Can I buy a house dependant on this sum. My wife's solicitor has suggested that we both rent for 6 months until our finances are divided. I do not want to rent and want my full half share of the house.

Hi, thanks for your question. It is your decision whether you wish to purchase a new house or not. However, has there been a financial agreement alongside the divorce? Do you both have children? What other assets do you each have?

I have not agreed to a divorce. We have 2 children, one 20 year old living in a flat and a 17 year old who will live with me. I have a final salary pension with a transfer value of £460000 my wife has smaller pensions of which I do not know the value.
