my husband left me in April, my 4yr old daughter and I are living in our family home, and he pays just over half the mortgage. I recently found out that my fixed mortgage comes to an end in Sept 2018 and I’m so worried what’s going to happen. I can’t afford to buy him out and can’t afford to buy else where and by the looks of it I’m not going to be able to afford to rent a property either. I can’t afford to pay my current mortgage with out him paying half. What do I do?! I can’t rely on him paying half the mortgage forever because he’ll want to settle down again before long I expect and he’ll not be able to pay towards the mortgage and he’ll want his money out the house. I’m just having sleepless nights and worrying sick about where me and my daughter will live. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
We only brought the house In Sept 2016 as a doer upper so it needs a lot of work doing, I’ve just finished doing one of the bedrooms but now I’m stuck not knowing what to do, am I just chucking money away continuing to do it up because it’s looking like I’m just going to have to sell next year. The house is in a state as he started to do work before he left and it’s been left with part stripped walls, half plastered, half the tiles off in the bathroom, a hole in the ceiling in the kitchen from a leak. I just feel like I’m drowning with worry and I can’t solve it.
I havent spoken to him about it all yet but I will do once Christmas is out the way.
