After unsuccessfully trying to sell the property, I have lived there and paid the joint mortgage and all running costs by myself.
It was agreed with my ex-husband that until the property market improved the house would not go on the market.
The value of the house has dropped even more, I believe I am now in negative equity.
My ex husband is financially well off ( he earns 3 times more than I) and is living with his new partner ( in her house) He wants me to sell the house as he wishes to purchase another property, this would not only leave me homeless but in more debt. I do not earn enough to take over the mortgage, I can however just cover the existing payments as the mortgage is interest only.
I have lived in the property for 9 years, we were married for 7 years.
Can he gain a court order to force me to sell?
Thank you in advance for any advice.
