  • Property on separation

    I have been with my partner for 7 years and recently found out that she has been having an affair for the last 2.

    At the beginning of this year I became joint owner of her property. We took out a new mortgage in both names and are joint tenants. I pay the mortgage.

    3 children live in the property aged 16, 11 and 5. I am only father of the 5 year old. The other 2 are hers from a previous relationship.

    I will be seeking formal legal advice in due course but would just appreciate some advice in the meantime. Am I right in saying I own 50% of the equity and I have no legal obligation to her 2 children?

    Hello, thank you for reaching out to our service. I understand this is difficult for you and will try my best to assist you. If you hold the property as joint tenants, you both own the entire property. Therefore it is common during a split it is 50:50. In regards to the children are you able to explain a bit further? Are you and your partner married or were you just living together?
