Hi, thank you for your message. Welcome to just answer. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Have you spoken to the other partner about this situation?
Hi, thank you for your message. Unless there is a court order in place you should come to an agreement before assets are sold. If you cannot reach an agreement you will need to take the matter to court. If there was an agreement in place regarding what would happen if the partnership was dissolved you need to follow this agreement. But again if you cannot agree you need to go to court. I would advise that you instruct a solicitor in your area to represent you.
You can find a legal aid solicitor by using this link: https://find-legal-advice.justice.gov.uk/. Legal aid is free assistance to people who cannot afford to pay legal fees such as legal advice and proceedings. You could also visit your local Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) ( For more information please visit: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/). CAB’s are accessible in different areas in the country providing free legal advice to individuals who cannot afford this. You can contact them by phone to book a face to face appointment. They may also be able to provide phone appointments. Moreover, you might be able to find a pro bono lawyer by attending/contacting a LawWorks Clinic. A probono lawyer is a free lawyer. The LawWorks Clinics Network is a network of free legal advice sessions that LawWorks (the Solicitors Pro Bono Group) supports. For more information and to find a network near you please visit the following website: https://www.lawworks.org.uk/legal-advice-individuals/find-legal-advice-clinic-near-you.

Hi, thank you for your message. No problem. I am glad to help. The lawyer will be able to examine your case in full and hopefully you will not need to sell.
