Hi, I wonder can anyone help me. The matrimonial home is on the market, and Consent Order is in place. However I have just found out that exes solicitor has been writing to the estate agent, and I have not received copies of these letters. I have asked the estate agent to forward them to me but he won’t. My question is should I be getting copies of these letters. The house is jointly owned. Thanks in advance.
You cannot withdraw from a Consent Order if it has been stamped by the court. It is a legally binding court order.
Have a look at the wording of the order and see what it says about conduct of sale. If you have joint conduct then yes, you should be included in the process. This would include agreeing joint letters of instruction.
If it says your ex has sole conduct then she is in charge of the process. You would not expect to be involved.
If it is joint instruction and is not happening as it should, you need to contact her solicitor to request copies of the letters. It is not the estate agent's place to share them with you.
