Going through a divorce or separation is one of the more stressful reasons for changing your mortgage arrangements. Divorce usually results in the redistribution of assets and income. Often, the former marital home is sold, with both partners seeking somewhere else to live.

Understanding your mortgage options during or following a separation is important as it’s a very personal process which can turn out to be rather expensive.
