my partner lived with his ex for 10 years and they have 2 children and bought a house together. they separated four years ago and she gave him some of the money from the house with the rest going as a ten percent charge completed by a solicitor which they both signed. payment was to be made when children reached 18 ,house was sold or she got married .she is now due to marry her new partner but says she is unable to raise the ten percent as he has ccj's against him and they cannot secure additional funding.
where does this leave my ex? is the charge enforceable by law/ i dont know if the charge was ever registered with the land registry!

Help! i feel we are basically now paying for their lavish wedding!:angry:

Best thing to do is dig out the order and see what it says. Is it part of a Consent Order?

If she is marrying and has to pay 10% then if she can't raise the money presumably the house will have to be sold?

How old are children now? If only a few years to go would he be prepared to wait or renogotiate for a bigger chunk when they are 18?

dont know if its part of a Consent Order but it is registered with land registry. prob need to seek some legal advice but i know my partner does not want to force her to sell as its his childrens home but we dont believe she is doing anything about trying to raise the funds so maybe need to seek some legal advice???
