Customer Question

Hello, I would just like to know where I stand, Ive told my husband I'd like to leave him we own a house together (mortgage) what are my rights?? I'd like to move into my own place, whilst the relationship is not violent it is obviously a very uncomfortable atmosphere for me and my 2 sons. Thank you

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

How much is the house worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?

What other assets and debts are there

How long have you and your husband lived together in total and how old are the children?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Around £300,000 valued recently I think around £85,000 left to pay, I have a credit card with about £2000 on it we've lived together since 1999 children are 11 & 6
Thank you
