Sorry to hear you are going through this. House prices are supposedly falling due to this virus so now (or after lockdown) wouldn’t be a good time to sell as you’d not see much of a gain in equity. I would definitely recommend that she speaks with your lender though…my lender wasn’t overly happy about me taking on our mortgage in my own name but they agreed to put the form of paying what is owing on the mortgage at the end of the term as ‘sale of the house’. We didn’t have a huge mortgage though. I shall take out a new mortgage once things have calmed down but for now it’s a way of releasing my ex as otherwise, like you, he wouldn’t be able to buy anywhere. Not sure how it all works re the house and finances as you’re not married. Hope you get it sorted. Try not to think of her in the house, it will take some time, but soon you will be in a position to make new memories of your own
There’s a lot of grey areas with this situation. I think it’s fine for children to stay at both households as long as both parents (and anyone else sharing that household) are abiding by the ‘stay at home’ rules. If one parent has to go to work but the other doesn’t, then the kids should stay with the non working (or wfh) parent. With regards to him coming over, do you have outside space? Would he be ok with coming over but keeping to the two metre distance? It’s incredibly hard on everyone but I think you are right to put everyone’s health first x
