Hello, my name is Peter and I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
Are you married to your partner?
How much would you receive from the sale in terms of a lump sum?
OK, I'm afraid that as you aren't married, it's not going to be possible to remain in the house. There's no automatic right here.
If you refuse to sell, he would most likely be able to take you to court to force the sale, which can be costly, and you would be faced with the bill if you are the party refusing to sell, which will eat away at the cash that you would receive if you simply agreed to sell as planned.
Do you have any family members that could act as guarantor for a mortgage for you?
It was just a thought, as a solution for you. It might be worth looking into.
Is there anything further I can clarify at this stage for you?
If you have further questions, you can always come back to me.
In the meantime, if you could take a second to provide a 5 star rating (at the top right of your screen), I'll be credited for my time spent responding to your question.
