Yes we are both named on the land registstry title.

No. It was discussed with the Solicitor at the time but nothing was ever signed.
Thank you for the response, I havea clarification question in relation to it.
My Partner does not earn enough to continue to pay the mortgage without my input. Based on your response above, does that mean that if she chose not to sell the property (which I don't think she will) I would have to continue to contribute at the same percentage I am currently doing so or risk having the Mortgage company re possesing the house?
Could I continue to live there or would I be forced to move out?
There is no way I could afford to continue paying the same amount and be in a position to pay for a property of my own.
