Who is responsible for paying our mortgage when we split?

A property owned in joint names may have  parties named on the mortgage or it not then one party might be guarantor. Each person will have an ongoing responsibility for debts  of any shared property, and if the parties do not make the necessary payments the bank may take action to repossess the home.   Sometimes orders are required to compel one party to pay it.
