I have a property that I would like to sell; unfortunately, my ex-wife is still a joint owner of the property. I have been unable to have her removed as a joint owner due to my financial situation and not being able to afford the £1,000 that the Building Society wanted to have her removed.
The property was awarded to me as part of the divorce settlement and my ex-wife has had no dealings with this property since the divorce was finalised. Incidentally, she was also awarded the former marital home (FMH) which she subsequently abandoned and the Building Society came after me to pay the mortgage on this property until I managed to sell it (at a loss) earlier on this year. She was also awarded another property (an investment property) as part of the divorce and she still possesses that property.
My question is can I apply to the court to order the sale of the house that I own without recourse to her? She is refusing to sign any papers unless I give her £10,000. I doubt that the equity in the property will amount to much more than about £7,000 and I have no intention in giving her a single penny.
