Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Is your name still on the title as a tenant in common, if so in what share?
-Are you separated from him and intending to divorce?
-What is the value of the property and what is the mortgage outstanding?
Thanks. Firstly, if you are a tenant in common then you will be named on the title of the property. You can easily check this here: https://www.gov.uk/search-property-information-land-registry for a small fee of £3 - please let me know what it states.
In any event, if your name is ***** ***** the title of the property you still have matrimonial home rights which can be registered on the title using form HR1 with the land registry - be aware that he will be notified of this registration. Furthermore, if you were to divorce, even if your name is ***** ***** the property you are still able to make a claim towards this property, and the wider matrimonial assets to meet your, and your children's needs.
