Hi, I'm Lea
What is your query about this?
Yes, that might make sense.
Which part has he changed his mind about?
If you decided to go to court over this matter, it is likely that the court may decide to make a Mesher Order, whereby you would be able to remain in the property until your youngest is 18 years old. The court would decide who pays what in relation to the house in the interim and set a percentage split for each party at the time the property is sold.
You could use this as leverage to get your husband to agree to the previous agreement - 25/75 - and say that if he wants 30/70 then he'll have to wait 5 years until the youngest is 18. However, it sounds as though you do want to stay in the house, so a Mesher Order would probably suit you better than the current deal on the table.
Please accept and rate positively. You will be able to ask follow on questions after you have rated.
I would need to review the Form Es and evidence before being able to tell you what a fair split would be.
On the basis of the information you have provided, the 25/75 split seems fair. You said he wants 30/70, but now you want the house signed over to you. It is entirely possible that the court will permit you to stay in the house until the children are 18, but based on the information provided, I cannot state that equivocally.

You might get a bigger share...but as I said, I have not seen all the financial disclosure.
Kindly rate using the five stars at the top of the page.
Could you please rate so that I am paid for the time spent responding to your query.
I said above that someone would need to review all financial disclosure before saying more than I have here. What you have provided is the bare bones and I have advised you as best anyone could in an online forum.
The average charge for reviewing the financial disclosure and evidence would be a minimum of £1500+VAT as it takes hours of work - so you can see that you will simply not get anywhere near the same level of advice in an online Q&A as you would in person.
Kindly rate as I have spent a considerable amount of time responding to you and will not be paid for my time without the positive rating.
