I'm trying to help a friend who has been through a difficult divorce. The divorce is complete; his ex wife has left him and their child and she has moved abroad. The financial settlement was decided by the court. She was due to pay maintenance and 45% of the mortgage which she has not done. The equity in the house was split 55/45 in his favour. He is now trying to buy her share of the house from her. She agreed to the sale price, he has a mortgage offer. At the last moment before exchange she withdrew her agreement to sell and did not agree to pay the o/s mortgage payments ( several months worth = several thousand pounds). He has been advised that he can get a judge to sign the house transfer over to him and that he has to complete a form D11? He is tight on cash as he is not receiving the mortgage contribution or maintenance payments and can't really afford more solicitors expense atm.
Please can someone point me to the right place on this site so that we can figure out if and how the house transfer can be effected by a judge or court on behalf of his ex wife.
