I have a mortgage with my husband (soon to be ex). I currently live in the home , he has moved out. Am i able to get a new mortgage in my own name only, on this same property. I wish to change providers as currenlty on an interest only.

Subject to your personal situation meeting a lenders criteria, there's no reason to suspect you wouldn't be able to get a new mortgage on the property in your sole name.
