Legal Question

Asked on: 2/02/12, 11:05 am

My ex-partner and I purchased a property together 8 years ago. Both of our names are on the mortgage. Since our split my partner left the property willingly due to feeling as if the home would become too hostile for her due to our break up. I have resided in the home for the past 4 years being soley responsible for all bills and repairs to the home. Has she legally abandoned the property? Can she move back into the property at any time? Can she force the sale of the property? Would she be entitled to 50% of the proceeds if I have been the only person paying the mortgage for the past 4 years or would the % be less based on when she moved out? What are my options. I want to stay in my home.
