I’m living (Im male) with my new partner, we met long after he had an affair went of with someone. He lives with his new partner 2 miles away
I’m selling my house (under offer) we want to buy together
Her house has been on the market for over 8 months. She lost a buyer 7 months ago as he refused to co-operate
Now he refuses to drop the price. Occasional viewers no takers , its near railway line small garden for its size. He refuses to change estate agent
Now the equity should be split 60/40 in my partners favour, she has proof
He did agree (but not sign anything) 55/45 split
Because we cant sell we offered to buy him out but he now wants 50/50 down that route, so he is playing silly games. He is still paying 50% mortgage buts its small
Given he wont reduce the price my view is my partner should bite the bullet and get the courts to decide equity split and price of house for a quick sell. The difference between 40% and 50% of equity is £26,000
There are pages and pages with their solicitors and it get her and now me down
He is a bully and has some violence in the background but doesn’t scare me one bit. He got RSPCA to come around and said house was untidy etc etc Dog fine house immaculate
No children are involved
Any ideas ?
I wish I could just talk to him (nicely) only Solicitors are winning at present
You will need to go & see a solicitor if you need factual.
But Err like i said he might be a jerk, but i presume he's still legally a joint owner of the property. if he isn't in a rush to see the money he may well want the asking price rather than settling for less than what the house has been valued at.You say he still pays half the mortgage whilst your living there? so he's paying for you to live there? Have you offered to buy him out at 50% of the market value, he does pay 50% of the mortgage or am i missing something?
Someone always gets screwed over in Divorce/seperation, so he wants 50% now the goal posts have moved, happens all the time.
ok 'removing the emotional argument' of course i see your point
he is paying around £200 a month towards a small mortgage
he doesnt know of my 'existance' but must cotton on as my car is there
The house has been on for same price for 7 months so lets assume he thinks the market will turn etc.
Now he once said he would accept 45% when house sales (3 months ago) now he says he would only accept 50% if he bought out. Its only entitled to 40% (but again to be fair thats what my partner says)
If he is happy to be a prat and change his mind and pay mortgage etc when im there so be it. However im assuming the courts can 'enforce a sale'
My partners solicitor said she would inform the police if he trys to turn up without notice
Its hard to 'remove' the emotion i guess
id have offered to buy him out after 2 months (she could easily afford to do that) but she said she didnt want to as she was scared didnt want to live there
I had a problem with my ex i moved out (yrs ago) and i found out she wasnt taking weekend viewings and refused to drop price (joint ownership). at the time it was a sale throught courts, she let me buy her out
Point to all this is does anyone have any expereince of force sales through the court
