So I’ve decided to split up with my fiancé. We have a 4yo daughter and we bought our house 3 years ago.
I don’t really know where to begin with how to split up. Is there a way to keep my name on the mortgage and for me to rent somewhere? I really want him to keep the house for our daughters sake so we both agreed we’ll try not to sell until later on.
I don’t have anyone that I can stay with, my parents are too far away and I work full time. I’m worried I’ll struggle financially as my job isn’t well paid but I need to get out of the house asap…
From vague research I can see there may be some benefits to help me financially, but my main concern is if my name being tied to the mortgage will affect me getting any housing.
I was able to rent a place whilst remaining on our joint mortgage by paying some rent in advance. It was a great stop-gap whilst we started mediation and worked out our finances going forward, as like you, I didn’t have anyone locally I could stay with.
I am happy to discuss the details in a private message if it helps.
i am currently doing the same as Nicky. I’m renting a one bed place for me and the kids (43/57 split) whilst still paying 50% of the mortgage and still names on the mortgage. We’re hopefully starting mediation soon so hoping to get this resolved soon, but has been a good stop gap.
