Hello, I hope everyone is fit and well this evening.

My ex-partner and I are unmarried and have no children. We bought my family home from my Mum so that she could move into a bungalow across the road. She has a crumbling spine and I work as her carer. My ex-partner left last year for someone he met online. We are managing the mortgage half each. I am applying for Support for Mortgage Interest as he wishes to no longer pay his half. I thoroughly understand how SMI works and need no advice on that. What I would like to know is whether there are any circumstances under which a court might refuse a forced sale. So far it has not come to that but I am aware it may one day happen.

If I have to sell I will never get another mortgage (low income as a carer) and there are rarely any properties to rent in my village. I would need to move to a nearby town,and the bus services are rubbish into the village. Living near my Mum now means I am on hand day and night. I am not looking for a new way to try and prevent a forced sale. I'd just like to know if my current circumstances of being a carer have any weight to them please?

Every good wish to you all.
