Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are you in England or Wales?
-Are/were you married?
-Are there any deeds of trust or formal agreements in place?
-How old is your son and what are the proposed arrangements for him?
-What other assets do you both have (joint and sole)?
Thanks for confirming. As you are joint owners, you both need to agree for the property to be sold. However, if no agreement can be reached then either owner can pursue a civil claim to court in order to force a sale of the property and for proceeds to be divided in accordance with how the property is held on title.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you

Given that you are not married, and in the absence of a deed of trust or formal agreement setting out who is entitled to what share of the property, or you demonstrating to him that he is entitled to an increased share of the property, then the proceeds of sale will be divided in accordance with how you both hold the title, even if he were to live there in the next 2-3 years without you.
