I've been divorced now for over 2 years and have a clean break consent order in place for over a year as well. Time to move on and I've been looking at buying a new property for myself and my new partner.
Are there any grounds that anyone is aware of that means there is any come back on me and for my ex and my kids to have any stake in my future house? Also, if I don't put a will in place, does that mean my kids automatically have a shared stake in any of my assets should I shuffle off this mortal coil?
Thanks in advance for your help and thoughts, it is greatly appreciated.
Once you've got a clean break order that's it. Your ex won't be able to make any further claims.
As to dying without a Will then inheritance would be according to the intestacy rules. House bought with your partner will depend on whether you hold it as joint tenants, in which case it would go straight to them, or tenants in common in which case it forms part of your estate.
