Hi, I'm Lea
Was there a deed of trust made when the house was bought specifying the split other than 50/50?
Are you planning to make a financial application to settle the marital finances?
Given the difficulties you are experiencing with your ex, it is unlikely you are going to come to an agreement, so the next option you would normally have would be mediation (which is a requirement before applying to court), however as there is an injunction in force, you are not obliged to do this and can therefore make your financial application to court without any further delay.
The court will decide on the split of the property according to each party's needs and the factors as listed in s25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 (google it so you can read the full list). You can put forward your case for wanting more than 50% to the court - as per the above, the court will consider the needs and factors.
Court is the method if he will not do so of his own accord.
You're very welcome.
All the best.
