Hi, my husband has decided to leave as he had an affair but he is not going to go with the other woman. He is happy to sign the house over to me but I cannot afford to keep the house. I don`t want to loose the house and don`t know what to do. I don`t know if I am entitled to any benefits as I`m on a low wage. I have been on the Directgov site as I live in the Uk and according to that I am entitled to benefits enough to keep the house but they will only pay if I am renting. I don`t know which way to turn at the moment. Will the mortgage company reposses my house if so how long does this take.
