What are we each entitled to in our divorce settlement?

What does the law say about how to split the house, how to share pensions and other assets, and how much maintenance is payable.

What steps can we take to reach a fair agreement?

The four basic steps to reaching an agreement on divorce finances are: disclosure, getting advice, negotiating and implementing a Consent Order.

What is a Consent Order and why do we need one?

A Consent Order is a legally binding document that finalises a divorcing couple's agreement on property, pensions and other assets.

Do you need help sorting out a fair financial settlement?

Our consultant service offers expert advice and support to help you reach agreement on a fair financial settlement quickly, and for less than a quarter of the cost of using a traditional high street solicitor.

Hi - ages 70 and 69, no dependent children. Agreed Consent Order wherein both parties are to conduct the sale of the MH. Other party has not co-operated in any meaningful way in not agreeing to review asking price or clearing out years of junk in attic and garages and being absent etc.
I would want vacant possession or sole conduct both unlikely. So what now?

I don''t have an answer but I have the same problem. His junk clutterig the garage and outbuildings up is compromising the sale of the house. Also, he''s not helping with the general maintenance, especially the garden and I just can''t keep up with it anymore. I''ll keep any eye on any useful responses in the hope that it will help me too!

My stbx does tidy up - but seemingly too much! Apparently it is too sanitised and doesn''t have a homely, welcoming ambience. If only I could afford to buy him out ...

When was the order sealed, is the sale price agreed, do you have anything to suggest the sale price is to high.

Can you post the exact wording of the part of the order that deals with the sale.

Is the sale dependent on any other part of the order.

Agreed Consent Order dated 03 April 2012.
Other party evidenced market appraisal from an agent stating £410,000 but other party stated £415,00 in E form. My agent stated ask for £380,000 and expect £360,000. My own view was gleaned from sale prices for identical properties in the same road sold with previous 12 months.
it is ordered under para 2 i.)"the property shall be sold for the sum of not less than £415,000 (currently agreed between the parties) or in default of such agreement as determined by the Court, and such price shall also include any additional sums agreed to be paid by the purchaser for fixtures and fittings remaining at the property
ii.) the property shall be offered for sale by such estate agents as may be agree between the parties or in default of such agreement as nominated by the Court and initially offered for sale through XXXXX.
iii.) The parties will agree to reduce the sale price ... after 17/04/12 to £410,000 if recommended by the estate agents to take effect 7 days thereafter and shall reduce from time to time if so recommended.
iv) both parties shall have conduct of the sale.
Hope this is sufficient.
