It is m uch much easier if you have your ex''s cooperation. He must surely realize that he cannot afford the mortgage on his own. So if he has any sense he will also be trying to find a solution that works. However not everyone has any sense so you might need to take court action.
How do I ensure that I force the sale of the house and split of the assets as quickly as possible?
Yes, that is the problem. You could tell him that you''ll pay £X per month for the next 3 months, £Y per month for the 3 after that, and after 6 months he''s on his own. It might be a bit of a bluff because you probably should not allow the house to be repossessed. But maybe that will convince him to actually remove butt from seat. But if it does not then a court application would be the only way.
It seems to me that if he''s here and getting half the mortgage paid for him, he''s not going to be in any hurry to do anything.
