my partner and I have split up with have a child together, we also own a house together which I want to sell but we do need to do some repairs to it, in the meantime it isn't healthy living in the same house, I have offered to omve out with our daughter to my mothers but a friend has said I can stay in the house until sold and he should move out? what rights do I have to do so?
Province/Country relating to question : hamsphire
he wants to sell the property as we have equity so we would come out with some money each but he wanst to do the house up and pay his debt off before putting the house up for sell and I ahve been trying to say we need to put it up sooner than that, he said he wont move out but it is not healthy living together as he wants to argue all the time,
I will still stick to paying my half of the mortgage as I dont want to be blacklisted, the household bills not sure on but could manage as my mother wouldn't ask for much, we are trying to tackle the repair costs each month as we are both a little stretched paying off credit cards etc... but were hoping to get repairs done over next few months and doing it ourselves, Our daughter is 19mths and yes his name is XX XXX birth certificate
