    Hi Amy,

    The question is whether his income, outgoings, credit history, etc. are sufficient to support the mortgage by himself. If yes, then happy days, contact a solicitor and your mortgage lender and between them, you can get things moving.
    However, if he can't afford the mortgage by himself, then you'll have more of an uphill battle, as he'd either have to find someone else to replace you on the mortgage or you'll have to sell the property. The latter is also problematic (ask a solicitor about your rights, etc), but also because if you sell a property within 6-12 months of buying it, your buyer will have a real issue finding a mortgage lender who accepts your short ownership. Lenders don't like it when someone sells a property within the first 6-12 months, as this could indicate money laundering / mortgage fraud.

    Hope the above helps!
