Separated from ex partner over two years ago. Still living in his house with two daughters aged 8 and 12. Though my name is XXXXX XXXXX the deeds or mortgage he says he wants to buy me out and give me half the equity on the house. I want to move out as he bullied me regularly and this has detrimental effect on me and the kids. I know if I move out I have less rights but I don't have any rights anyway as he has never allowed me to pay any bills. How do I go about getting a legal agreement that says he will give me half the equity within a finite amount of time? He may not give me any money but I want to know where I stand in looking for somewhere to live. Meg XXXXX
