Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required to fully assist you:
-Are/were you married to each other?
-What assets and income is there?
-Do you have children together, if so how old are they and what are the proposed arrangements for them?
Thank you for your question. As you are not married and you have no children together the legal position is that you are only entitled to 30% of the proceeds of sale of the property as this is what you hold on the title, unless there are any formal agreements between you.
If your partner seeks to remain in the property then you will need to negotiate a buy-out of your share of the equity. If no agreement can be reached you will need to apply to your county court to force a sale - this can be done using form N1 and a £355 court fee.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you
