Need to buy out a partner from an existing mortgage because of divorce?

Mortgages to Buy Out Your Ex

What are your options?

Depending on your circumstances, you may decide to:

  • buy the other owner's share
  • sell their share to a new joint owner
  • sell the home and split the proceeds.

Once you've reached an agreement about what to do, you might want to get another formal legal agreement drawn up to reflect this. If you're separating from your partner, the agreement is called a 'separation agreement' and can be used to sort out all sorts of important issues such as:

  • who'll pay off any joint debts
  • pension entitlement
  • what will happen to your home.

If you're not in a relationship with the other joint owners, you could consider having a 'Minute of Agreement' drawn up by a solicitor if things are complicated. In most cases though, you'll probably be able to agree what's going to happen between yourselves.

You will need independent legal advice from a solicitor if you're in either of these situations then again this is where we can help.

What if I want to buy or sell a share in a home?

If you own your home jointly with someone else, you may wish to buy out the other owner at some point, or to sell your share. In this case, you'll need to get the property valued, to find out how much your share is worth. You may wish to get more than one valuation, to ensure you get a fair price. You then need to agree on a selling price with the new joint owner.

What is a divorce mortgage?
It?s a sad fact that around 40% of marriages end in divorce. Working out how mortgage repayments will be kept up and how to refinance your arrangement is an important consideration. Most married couples co-own their property. If one partner wants to move house, their share of the property can be bought from the other partner who wants to stay in the home. Divorce mortgage specialists help you work out how much this percentage is worth and how to proceed sensitively. A divorce mortgage also helps you to factor in other legal details and help avoid missed payments or financial problems.
