Hi, thank you for your question. Legally, as neither of you have remarried or a final order has been made, either of you are able to pursue a claim against the other for any assets. You have good argument that he should not be entitled to it as you have acquired it post-separation that he should not be able to claim against it, but there is always a risk that he could.
If you wish to receive further information please confirm:
-How old are you both?-How long you lived in the property together?
-How long you have been separated?-Do you have any children together, if so their ages and arrangements?-What other assets and pensions do you both have (both sole and joint), together with values?-What are your respective incomes?

You should be aware that even when the divorce is granted, if there is no formal court order in place settling the finances, you are both entitled to pursue a financial relief claim against the other. You should therefore think about coming to an agreement regarding the finances before considering the property purchase.
