How much does a cheaper three bedroom property in the same school area cost to buy?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Clare the typical house price for a 3 bed house is around £300,000
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Are you aware that a phone call cost more?

In fact you are in no way financially liable for her children.

If you separate you certainly will not have to pay for her to remain in the property.

Your worst case scenario is that the sale will be delayed and you may have to wait for your share of the equity.

However given the figures and the fact that the children are not yours there is an excellent chance that a Court would still order an immediate sale if an applictaion is made.

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
