Thank you for your question.

Is the flat owned jointly?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes
Expert:  JGM replied 3 years ago.
In the absence of any reason to the contrary, such as imbalance of payment of mortgage etc, the sale proceeds would be divided equally or one would buy the other out for one half of the equity in the house.

Happy to discuss any specific questions you have.
