i'm deeply concerned that my name isn't on the mortgage or deeds. we have been married for 6 years and have a 5 year old together and i have 2 teenagers age 13 and 15 who he has brought up for the last 7 years. does anyone know if i still have the same rights on the property?
I think you do as your marriage is of reasonable length. You have to tell the land registry that you have an interest in the property and then it can't be sold from over your head. Other people here can tell you how to do that.
don't worry you more or less certainly will be able to stay in the property if u r retaining custody of the kids and u may receive more than 60% of the equityn and if you can't afford to buy your hubby out then you will be able to remain in the home until your son is 17 and if your husband's share had to stay in the property if you couls not take it on alone then it would be sold and shared out between the two of you accordingly. I would recommend you go and see a family lawyer ( most do free first interviews) as this will put your mind at rest x
you need to put matrimonial homes act notice on the land register and if you call them up they are very helpful and will tell you exactly what forms you need etc and its much cheaper and quicker than instructing a solicitor to do it!!
he's getting really angry when we discuss equity saying i have no right to the 100 grand he put in this house (profit from last house sold)saying i can only have half of profit from this house which will probably be about 30k i'm so scared i wont be able to find somwhere to live with the children, he says if i go for more than that he'll gamble it all away!(idiot) he moves out in a couple of weeks, but we have a family holiday booked to see my family in australia, he says he will cancell that too, he wants to stay in house whilst we're away for 4 weeks, i'm seeing a sol tomo. i think 50/50 is fair to give us both a chance to move on, he earns much more than me. am i being unfair?
