Thanks for your question.You can force the sale of the property by making (or posturing to make) an application to Court. If your partner cannot demonstrate sufficient finance to receive a mortgage offer to buy you out and transfer the equity in to his name then this is your only option. A local solicitor would be able to do this for you and these orders are seldom refused by the Court.There is no document you can draw up to release or limit your liability under the mortgage on which you are named. Only once your partner can and has remortgage or the mortgage is paid off in whole upon sale will you be released.If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my efforts. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.Kind regards,Tom
Probably somewhere between £750-1250 depending on your partner's motivation to defend the application.
