i have posted this query recently ,unfortunately i got no reply,i know ther has been severals queries re ancillary relief,but not this one. anyway,none was ever sorted been divorced 2yrs now,council agreed to discretionary loan to pay £5,750 cover service charge. but now they want me to send papers to x fore him to sign. were not in contact still a lot of bitterness there. question is. what if he refuses to sign,could i lose the house, and if i apply for a-relief do i have to have solicitor,as i cant afford 1 but are not entitled to lesgal aid,im afraid im not handling this well,as i thought we had left all this crap behind,my 18yr old girl is panicky also. can anyone shed any light. please dont tell its complicated!!!!!!!
it is possible to apply for ancillary relied without a solicitor.
The Step by STep guide on this site is a good place to start. Click the link below for the page to start on. At the bottom of a page is the link to the official court leaflet you can download which explains how to apply for ancillary relief.
the loan is to pay a large service bill £5,750,when capitol works was carried out on all properties in the area,leaseholders are invoiced with their share of the bill,you cannot opt out of these services,unless you are a freeholder. hence large bill.
its the council,and the house is in joint names,so they say he will need to sign for it,even thought i will be paying it. i had a look at the site you reckonmended,visited it prev, im baffled ,so i may contact cab for advice.
thanks for your replyies,im open to anything at present,as im sure he will use the oppotunity to make me sweat,he wouldt even realise thats its in his interest.
