I have a 50% share in a property inherited from a grandparent. I share ownership with my mother.
My S2BX has written to me requesting a key to this property so she can have it valued??
As she has no legal ownership rights to the property I assume this is not required for her E form and she is just being nosey...
I have refused her access. I assume i am within my rights to do so?
I have not had it valued as yet... need to get my finger out!
Because you part own the property its value does need to be disclosed, what effect it will have on the settlement is another story entirely, if your mother lives in the property it is not a liquid asset as it cannot be sold.
But yes it will need to be valued if only to provide full and frank disclosure.
I understand that thanks Dukey, but this will be disclosed on my E form. Why should i give her access? Should I? Do i have too?
She has been very underhand in that she removed all my fiancial documentation lock stock and barrel from the FMH when we split.
I dont feel like being amicable more than i have too.
I had to threaten prosecution to get them back!
She will find out via my e-form and if she disputes it the judge will prob ask for an independant valuation?
Am i being unreasonable in denying access. This will be my home once refurbished.
Interesting it would be a liquid asset even though I only own half? Surely sale can not be forced if my mother owns half of the property. It is not livable at present. Under refurbishment. Had to stop on separation due to funding issues.
