My sons partner (they never married) decided to move out of the home that they have a joint mortgage on. She left the home almost 3 years ago and has never contributed since to any payments for the mortgage upkeep, she has lived in a council provided property since moving out and is now demanding that he sell the house and split any equity with her. He does not want to sell as he is happy where he is and feels that if they were to sell he may have trouble gaining another mortgage elsewhere on another property, thus effectivley making himself homeless. Can she force him to sell up? he is willing to remortgage and buy her out but if no lender will grant him another mortgage and he does not wish to sell, where does he stand/
The property is currently valued at £98,000 and has a mortgage of approx £88,000, if it was sold tommorrow each party would have approx £5000 equity.
But my original question still stands, can she force my son to sell ?
