    My de facto partner of 25 years really wants to keep our house (by far our biggest asset) with a very large debt. I want to downsize and pay off debt. We can’t agree.

    If I end the relationship, can she drag out property settlement for months costing more interest from the debt, or can the house sale be forced to proceed promptly?

    We have no children, and we share pretty much all bills.

    Where you can't agree about property settlement, it rarely 'proceeds promptly' unfortunately! Reaching an agreement between yourselves is the most beneficial option. You might find this information about separation and property settlement useful:
