It is with more than a little interest that we have read recently that lenders are in talks to introduce an innovative divorce mortgage to deal with people being forced to sell their homes after they split in later life.
It may come as a surprise to some that government statists show that the over-50s now account for the largest increase in the divorce rate with 28% of divorcing couples having to sell their home, according to the lender, Nationwide. Read More
For many years good local solicitors involved in family law, as well as wills and probate have warned co-habiting couples about the need to make sure they are legally protected.
