My partner and I split up June 2011. I left and took our son with me. My ex continued to live in our home for a year and then he moved in with a new partner and let our house. When I left I went back to my parents and then got myself a rented property. I agreed when I left that my ex could live in the property until convenient to sell. We also agreed that my ex would pay £40 per week for my son. For a while I did get this amount but then it became sporadic and now is very rare because my ex has a new partner who has 2 children and now they have a new baby together as well. I have just found out that the house has been up for sale since October and my ex isn't intending to give me anything from the sale because he says he paid the mortgage after I moved out! He hasn't infact because the person he rented to covered the mortgage. I have tried to keep things amicable for my son's sake and my ex has regular weekly access even when he doesn't give me any money. I have always tried to be reasonable which is why I moved out. I now need to know what my rights are re the house where my name is XXXXX XXXXX mortgage. Should I go to a solicitor to get maintenance and what is mine 're the house or aren't I entitled to anything from the house? I put £6000 into the house in 2008 as .a deposit and the mortgage is an interest only for £101000 and the house is up for sale for £115000. Advice needed please
The house is in both names as is the mortgage and no I haven't been through CSA as I was trying to be amicable but now my ex is getting nasty and I don't know my rights etc.
The house and the mortgage are in both our names. I have not contacted the CSA as I wanted everything to be amicable. However, my ex is not getting nasty about the house and since his daughter was born last May I have had very little money from his. I am wanting advice and what my rights are re the house. ie am I within my rights to ask for some of the profit and if so how much especially considering I am raising our child with little finance from his dad.
Relist: Other. asked a question, Clare replied asking a couple of simple questions, I replied and then waited. I need an answer tonight and she seems to be offline now.
Hi Clare? Your status says online so please can you review my question and reply or open it back up for other people to answer.
Sorry Clare. New to this and when the 19mins expired it then opened automatically I think!
We never married and the house was funded with a mortgage. We paid £115000 for the house, I put in £6000 cash as part of the deposit and my ex put in the rest. I think we took out a £101000 or £104000 mortgage on an interest only basis and it never changed when we split up. We bought the house in October 2008 and our son was born in April 2009 and we split up June 2011. When I left I took clothes for myself and my son and a few items that my family had bought, All furniture and electrical goods etc were left behind. My ex gave me our little car which was worth about £4000 so I could get our son and myself around. My ex had/has a van for work.
Hope to hear from you soon as I am wondering if I need a solicitor which obviously is going to cost, money I don't have!
No, it is out of the area we settled in, close to my parents so they can help and also my son started school here last Sept. so I wouldn't want to disrupt him again.
Thanks for the reply. That settles my mind but as I have had very little support from my ex is there any way I can get more money from the house?
Also my ex is getting nasty and saying things he shouldn't in front of the all the children. I am concerned that when my son is at his house that the three boys are put into the bedroom they share at about 6.30 and left to watch DVD's with the promise of a second if they don't get out of bed. Also that my ex says things and that my son hears the arguments. I refuse to talk in front of my son but my ex says things when he brings him home. Should I see a solicitor or would this prove costly?
Thanks for your help.
