Hi. Is there any precedent regarding split of equity for a jointly owned house? Someone mentioned 70/30 in favour of the resident parent with children? Thankyou

Percentages aren''t a very helpful way of looking at things. What really matters is needs and how they can be met from the available pot. This pot includes all assets - so savings, pensions etc all come into play.
Have a look at section 25 of the 1973 matrimonial causes act. This sets out what is considered when finances are settled on divorce.
