My husband left in Nov as is having an affair. i am divorcing him for adultery as he was otherwise going to divorce me for unreasonable behaviour. I feel I am rushing in to this but am not ready to sell the house yet.We were together 36years the children are adults and i live alone in the house. I earn more than he does and although we have around £350000 equity in the house after the mortgage is paid, it wont be enough when split to buy anything in the area. a 2 up 2 down terrace is about £280000 . Should I just sit tight until ready to move or will legal bills start to rise if husband gets impatient.
Hi Megan. Sorry to here your plight. I would sit tight and see what happens. There are plenty of properties around for less than 280K. You may have to move out of the area. But do you need all this space? I have a 3 bed house and its a pain to look after. I would love a small 2 bed flat. Chris
if only i had 280k left. No when split husband wants his half I am left with about 160-170k if house sells. It seems so unfair that i have to move to an area in which I don't know anyone when i have already lost everything. My children both live away so would need a house big enough for them to stay when they visit.
