Thank you for the question. If you and your partner have separated, you may wish to look at obtaining a separation agreement. This will outline your fiduciary rights moving forward after the separation. In terms of the sale of the house, as it was, from what I understand, a property which was your matrimonial home, you could look to raise an action of Division and Sale. This what is commonly known as a forced sale order, basically it is a court order obtained by one party when the other party does not wish to sell the home. As stated you will want to look at a separation agreement as you may be entitled to spousal maintenance. I would strongly advise seeking legal representation in this matter so that you are fully aware of your rights in terms of the matrimonial assets.
