I’m a bit confused because you say that your ex-partner left you to years ago without warning but you still live together!

Have there been any allegations ever of bullying, verbal or mental abuse or physical abuse or is it likely to be alleged she can’t get her own way?

How much mortgage outstanding?

Please confirm the deeds are in joint names. You said “both” and I think that refers to the question but please confirm.

What is the value of the house?
