Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
How much is outstanding on the mortgage?
Are you intending to start divorce proceedings?
How much would a suitable one bedroom property in the same general area cost to buy?
Do either of you have any other assets?
Given the length of your relationship the starting point for division of the matrimonial home is 50/50
Unless there are other assets then it is unlikely that the Court would move much from the 50/50 division
You could look at Shared Home ownership schemes in your area to see what might be afforded - and you should protect your Matrimonial Home Rights using the form here
I hope that this helps - please ask if you need further details
