EX-HUS­BAND GETS A SLICE

FOL­LOW­ING my di­vorce three years ago, I took over the mort­gage on the fam­ily home and have made all the cap­i­tal and in­ter­est re­pay­ments since. I’ve also met the cost of re­pairs and in­sur­ance. The County Court has re­cently awarded my ex-hus­band 50 per cent of the value of the house when it’s sold, which in the cir­cum­stances hardly seems fair. YOU could have asked the court to take into ac­count the amount you have re­duced the mort­gage by since you took over pay­ments, but that would only be rel­e­vant if it was a cap­i­tal re­pay­ment mort­gage. It may be though that, since your ex-hus­band had to pay for ac­com­mo­da­tion else­where, you should not be given any credit for any pay­ments you have made. I pre­sume that you were rep­re­sented by a so­lic­i­tor. If the money is sub­stan­tial then it would be worth­while dis­cussing
