My fiance and I bought a house together 2 1/2 years ago. We recently have ended our relationship, and I don't know what my options are now with respect to the house and mortgage. I have been paying the entire mortgage and utilities for the past two years (he has been out of work). He doesn't want to move out, and in a perfect world, I don't want to either, but obviously we are not going to stay under the same roof. I need to find the deed to determine whether this is a joint tenancy or tenancy in common, but under either scenario, what is my recourse for getting reimbursed for back mortgage, or only having to pay for part of the mortgage going forward (without hurting my credit). Also, if I move out, does that have any impact on my legal ownership of the property - I cannot be said to have abandoned it, can I?
