I’m wondering if anyone has had any success with getting a partner to leave a jointly owned property so the children can continue living in the same place.
My children’s dad refuses to leave which is forcing me to go into a rental property with the children . I could cover the mortgage and bills etc for the same money as a rent alone.
We have approx 50% of mortgage left to pay (so own 25% each of house outright) . I’m not currently working but have savings that would sustain the.kids and I for a year or more. I would then work and buy him out.
have you had any advice from a solicitor? I know it’s expensive but some solicitors offer a free initial consultation.
I think a family court would frown on the children having to leave their home because of their father’s refusal to leave as he should be the one leaving. Unfortunately, if he is really digging his heels in then court would probably be the only way to go.
Do not contact solicitors. Try and see if you can free advice. As soon as the lawyers find out you own property then they become greedy.
I was able to buy the home office my ex husband. It wasn’t easy as I reduced my hours after having my daughter . My ex is not her father but wanted us out . The judge wouldn’t entertain the rubbish his legal team was suggesting so I could stay but as.soon as my daughter turns 5 years old I would have to give him the rest of his money. He hid most of his money and although I have a child the judge ruled in his favour in the end so be very careful that you don’t lose out. It is not that straightforward and our court case cost £50k .
