I seperated from my husband 15 months ago. I moved int rented property with my 3 year old daughter and have been there since. We have a property in London valued at around £500,000 puds and It is in both our names. I would now like to look at moving my daughter into a family home as our flat is too small and uncomfortable for her. I want to know what my rights are about selling the property and taking out my equity on this. We are meeting this evening to discuss things and I would like to know my basic rights in general are prior to this prior to this.
