Buying my ex partner out of mortgage
Hi. Me and my partner broke up 11 months ago we had a mortgage and young child together, she walked away from the family home leaving me to cover all the mortgage payments and bills on my own aswell as having my child 4 nights per week. We had the house valued, we then calculated that at the point she left she will accept a cash payout for half of the equity in the house at the point she moved out. It’s not been 11 months and I have just had the mortgage excepted to have on my own, I called to say I will transfer the money we agreed on so she can take her name off the mortgage, she replied saying that the house is now worth a lot more money so she wants it re valuing and more money in return to sign the house over.
Even tho she has not contributed a single £ since she walked out is she entitled to a larger amount because the house is worth more or should she only receive half of the equity from when she moved out?
