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.

Well, I imagine it might be something like this :
Will you give your opinion as to the price the property could reasonably be expected to realise if sold on the open market, with vacant possession, and free from encumbrances * between a willing buyer and a willing seller.
* just means that if there are any incumbrances they may need to be mentioned.
But I am sorry, I don''t have access to precedent books any more. I would really advise you to see a solicitor who would have such resources. That should not cost you an arm and a leg.
Why are the other side objecting to your wording ?

The other thing is this. A lot might depend on what you want the valuation for.

If a buy out is contemplated, then the valuer will be asked to give his opinion as to a fair price.

If a sale is contemplated the valuer will want to get the best price available. The two situations are not the same, and the instructions to the valuer will differ accordingly, depending on what you want.
