Hello, my name is*****’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I will look over this and come back to you shortly with a response.
How is your youngest going to split their time between you?
Am I right from reading the above that your youngest is 17 years old currently?
How much equity is there in the house?
And are the pensions of similar value?
OK. On the basis of the figures, I cannot see that a departure from 50/50 on the house is needed or justified.
Nor is the delay in a sale, to be honest. By the time it all goes through he would be at the youngest 17 1/2 years old, and almost an adult. There's no good reason to delay on account him, as there is plenty of equity to go around and you both have mortgage capacity.
As regards ***** ***** my view is that as you are older and potentially will retire due to ill health, you could seek a higher than 50% share of the joint pot.
I hope this assists?
