Mass.,Me and my ex-boyfriend bought home together. we have a child. i put a down payment on home. he moved out in august and is now trying to make me sell at a low price. the house has doubled in value. can i get my investment and half the equity? it is a bad situation, i was pressured into signing a "letter of intent" to sell, and in it my investment wasn't mentioned. he said he needed this letter to let the appraiser look at the house. i signed it and now his lawyer is telling me i have to sell at a price i feel is way too low. what are my options? he wants to buy out with less then my investment was.

Only agree to sell at fair market value as determined by a state licensed real estate appraiser.
Do not let his attorney push you around, do not sign anything or agree to anything. Get an attorney to level the playing field.
