Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Have any of the listed trigger events been met?
-Was the mortgage taken out to pay off your husband or your ex-partner?
Did you cohabit for more than 6 months?
Thanks for confirming. In the circumstances you would be liable to pay 25% of the equity of the property to your ex-husband given that the trigger point has already been met.

What is the value of the property and what would he have needed to pay for his share of the maintenance of the property up until the trigger event?
What was the approximate value of the property and the mortgage at the time you cohabited for 6 months?
In relation to maintenance costs, it will be difficult to assess whether redecoration of the home counts as maintenance and this should usually be specified in the court order, however maintenance is the general upkeep of the property - such as essential repairs etc.
Thank you - in that case he would be entitled to 25% of the equity at that time - therefore £1,625, less any share he did not pay up to that time in relation to maintenance as provided for in the order.
