Hi, thank you for your question. Just a bit more information required:
-Are/were they married to each other?
-Whose name is ***** ***** of the property in?
-Are there any formal agreements or deeds of trust in place between them?
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 35 years
How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage - and what income do they each have?
I am here - has your daughter claimed all posisble benefits and is there any way she can manage the mortgage with child maintenance as well as her own sources of income?
Do you realise that the site charges extra for a phone call
Do not worry - there are some basic points that I can make which may help
The important point is that her ex cannot force a sale of the property until the youngest child is 18 - nor cans he force her to buy him out.
My concern is that she is only entitled to child maintenance at 16% of his gross income and if she remains in the property she will be expected to pay the mortgage
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
That is my main concern - it is the finances she needs to look at - ignoring his threats.
