    Answered . If you are not on the note and mortgage, then you could quit claim your interest to your ex and walk away. If there is equity in the property, then you might be better off selling your interest to your ex or to someone that he would want to co-own the property with. If you could actually find your own buyer, you could sell your share; but it would be pretty unlikely that anyone would want to buy into a property with a stranger/owner living in it.
