Hi Looking for some help for a friend. My friend and her ex husband both civil servants on around €50000 each per annum. The house they jointly own is now worth around €320000 and Mortgage around €400000. They had a tenant in the house who was paying the mortgage every month but now the ex husband and his partner have moved back into the house and are paying the mortgage. It suits my friend as she no longer has to pay tax on rental income. My friend is currently renting as she cannot afford to buy. The ex wants to get mortgage put in the name along with his new partner even though house is in negative equity. They are currently waiting on banks and solicitors. Is there anything my friend needs to be aware of if the transfer goes ahead. Or what about if it doesnt, he is in house paying mortgage off does this give him greater rights, she cannot live in the house as she left the area but has to rent another house.
