Hi, very early in the divorce process and house valuations planned for this week/next week. My head is still getting around the whole divorce and there is a lot to to prepare before going to market. My question is do I go for a quick house sale or wait a while? The house is likely to sell instantly.
All my instincts say hold off because there is too much going on, she is prevented from accessing the house or me anyway for legal reasons so no pressure, and the longer I wait the better the house price is likely to be. Anyone got a convincing reason for waiting?
is she a joint owner as she will likely have to give her permission for a sale. Proceeds from a sale will be part of the division for finances and I wouldn't do anything just yet although I appreciate the housing market is still buoyant.
The first thing is to get the divorce on a roll and to protect all of the assets like savings, get joint accounts frozen or closed in the meantime to protect them.
