My partner would like us to move house by the end of this year, he has told me that I've got to pay the solicitors fees. We have a child, I work full time in a nursery, I love my job but my monthly wage isn't a lot and it goes into our joint account and basically helps with household costs. My partner is a construction manager and has his own business account he's putting pressure on me but I feel it's completely unfair, I would be grateful for any advice x

Why have you got to pay the solicitor's fees?

Do you want to move house?

If he wants to move house, he should pay the fees! Why are you moving house? Is it a joint decision?

If your money is put into the same account why is he asking you specifically to pay the fees? Does he have an issue with how much money you earn and if so is this an ongoing problem for him?

Get you're own account for one thing

Will the house be in joint names? Do you have personal savings?

Not enough information OP.

If you're partners, the money is joint
