I bought a house with my ex partner 10 years ago we have 2 children and have split up, I am now in a new relationship and so is she, we are joint tenants but she is trying to force me into being bought out for a pittance saying she wants my name off the house and by law im only entitled to 40% of any equity as she has the kids ?? Where do I stand legally please
Hello , no we werent married, we were together 4 years then got house, had house 10 years then split up 3 years ago ,i left her in house with kids and went to my mums, i paid towards house for a year then just paid maintenance weekly for the past 2, she is harassing me daily saying the law says she entitled to 60% of equity and she must buy me out, but i dont agree
I already asked in family law ??? I was directed to property law as it is a question about rights to a property ??
The house is worth spprox 110,000 there is 55000 left on mortgage, her new partner has his own place, she wants to give me 15000 to take my name off mortgage but says i have to put it in a trust fund for my kids, ive told her to sell it and start afresh as im entitled to 50/50 as we are joint tenants, unmarried, the children are 11 and 5
Are you answering my question or not ??
