There would not be any such clause. There would be a clause that says you would use your best endeavours to remove him. But as you say you are not currently in a situation where you can take on a sole mortgage. So how do you propose to get him off? Most mortgage companies will lend you 3.5x your salary, so to get a sole mortgage you would either need to increase your earnings or decrease the mortgage amount. If you can''t do either of those then it''s just tough luck, he will have to stay on it.
I don''t want the clause in there that keeps him on the mortgage
Yes that would be possible, but only if your husband agreed. If he says no then it''s pretty unlikely he could be forced to sell his house. And lets face it, why would he say yes? He presumably is quite happy with the status quo.
Would an alternative be for us to sell the houses and just walk away with the money so I can start again elsewhere?
