The housing crisis means it is not uncommon for people to be stuck living with their partners after they break up. Exes are locked into mortgages together, stuck renting a property together, or are in a grey area where they have just broken up and want to move out.

We would like to speak to readers who have had to live with their exes for a prolonged period of time.
