Thank you for your reply. The house is valued at £155,000 the outstanding mortgage is approx £23,000. My annual salary is £14,000, I have no major debt just a small credit card bill and assets wise is the contents of the house. His annual salary is £11,000?? debt?? and assets he has the car and few items from the house tv, games consoles etc. The lump sum that we've agreed upon is £10,000 from sale, which I think is a decent request.
