Customer Question

we have just recently seperated and i am not sure about what to do about our home or who is entitled to what. The house is worth £120.000 the morgage we have left is £80.000 but we also have a secured lone on the property which is greater than the equity. My daughter is 14 and is still living with me i intend to stay in this property. What would my ex wife be entitled to bearing in mind she is not paying anything towards the morgage or the secured loan that is on this property.

Hi
Since there are no assets - only debts - all your ex will get is a share of the debts - how big a share depends on what you negotiate
