Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am here to assist with your question. Essentially, if you have bought him out of the his share of the equity, then he should have no further claim on the property, him having taken his share and putting him in the position that he would have been had you decided to sell the house and split the proceeds. If you have come to this arrangement prior to the divorce, then essentially the financial side of things will not be contested.
Yes you are right in that if you were to die intestate and you were still married that he would inherit your estate. Even with a will, if you are still married there may be a claim on some of your estate, but it's not straightforward. So though a will is your first layer of protection, the divorce would effectively be your only way to ensure any of your estate does not pass to him.
