Thank you for the swift reply, but if you could just clarify a couple of points:
There are no children involved.
I assume that where you wrote ‘The Courts do like people’ you meant ‘do not’?
I understand the issue of liability in regards XXXXX XXXXX mortgage, but surely the fact that I will be made homeless has to play a part in this process.
Also the fact that the property is in negative equity, surely means if it were sold for less than the original price, someone would have to pay the difference. As I have no assets, savings and my credit rating is mediocre at best, XXXXX XXXXX be impossible for me, so unless my ex was willing to put up the required amount (which I doubt) what would happen then?
