Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Will you be buying the property in your sole name?
So your partner will own 50% of the property anyway?
There is a small risk of this - but only if she can show that her 50% of the equity will not allow her to purchase another home for herself and her daughter - and the rise in shared home ownership schemes makes that unlikely!
However if you have a child together the situation is different as she will be able to use the Children Act to make an application rather than having to rely on the provision within Property Law that where there is a child a sale can be delayed if it is reasonable to do so.
Please ask if you need further details
