How to remove an ex partner's name off mortgage deeds?

I have owned my home for nearly 5 years and last year my partner and I took on a mortgage to get an extension etc, however things have not gone too great and we are separating and he is moving out to rent a house elsewhere.
I have taken on a second income to afford the repayments and my bills etc as I understand that it will be very difficult for the bank to take his name off the mortage and it be in my name solely.
My partner has only contributed to the mortgage for the past 8 months and as from last month it is only me paying them.
As it will be difficult to remove his name off the mortgage - how do I go about removing his name off the deeds/entitlements. As awful as it sounds, I don't want him to have any entitlements to my home as it is so importnant to me.
He has agreed that he is happy to visit a solicitors or whatever it is that we need to do and sign a document to state this - that the property and all it's equity is mine and not his.
How do I go about doing this? Who and where do I go to? Do i need to print off a form off the internet and then sign it in front of somebody as a witness?
I am really confused as I live in the UK but can only seem to find answers on the web for US residents with this problem!
Any help would be so greatly appreciated - the sooner I get this done the lighter I will feel as it's a very stressful time right now.
