Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
You both own the home and it was designed to be the "family home" to yourself, your daughter and your ex. Assuming your daughter is under 18, your husband is not going to be able to apply to the court to force a sale if you disagreed on selling at this stage. When your daughter reaches 18 then potentially he would stand a better chance. An option for him would be to agree with you to sever the joint tenancy (in to tenancy in common where you own the property in distinct shares) and he can sell his share to someone else. You may also want to do this so that if you were to die, you can leave your share to your daughter or whoever else - at the moment if either you or your ex were to die then the home would pass to the other under the rules of survivorship (even though you have split up).
