Should I leave my house in a separation?
It need not. In NSW, all marital property is to be divided equitably, considering each party's needs and contributions. The party who stays in the house will not necessarily get to keep it. If property settlement negotiations are well underway before anyone moves out, the ultimate agreement may be easier to work out.
Can you buy a house while legally separated?
Buying a home while legally married but separated from your former spouse is certainly possible, but there's some extra documentation needed and things to be aware of. First, your lender is going to require your legal separation agreement. If you have a property settlement agreement, they'll need that as well.
Can I sell my house if my partner doesn’t want to?
If Your Partner Refuses Permission If you want to sell and your partner doesn't (or vice versa), one person can begin an action of division and sale in court. However, the other party can petition the court to a division of the proceeds, or to buy the place at a market price or one decided by the court.
