Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Is the house held in joint names?
How much is it worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage?
Are there any children involved?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


The House is in joint names its woth about £250.000 we have left to pay about £98.000 on the morgateg

and no children as both left home ages 21yrs old & 22 yrs old



Are there any other assets and how much do you each earn?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Hi Clare,

We both have are own cars,

He earns about £450 -£600 per wk ,take home .

I earn about £1100. per mth.


Please do not worry - he cannot sell the property to family or anyone else without your knowledge and agreement - and if he did purport to do so then the Transfer would be set aside anyway
Neither can he force you to leave the matrimonial home - unless you are violent - and if he tries to exclude you you will be able to get an order excluding him instead!
The starting point for division of the equity is 50/50 but you may be entitled to slightly more since you earn considerably less than your ex
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
