The FMH that I currently still live in needs to be sold. I will be getting all the equity once the mortgage has been paid off. My ex however wants joint control of sale. This doesn''t seem right as he in theory has nothing to do with it. My solicitor feels I should have full control. What are others experiences and how would a judge normally deal with this?
maisy, have the court ordered the sale of the FMH? If so, did they not give Directions in the order as to who would be responsible for the sale?
If your ex doesn''t live there, then I personally think it would all be too difficult to conduct a sale on a home where you live and he didn''t. I am aware that you have accepted it needs to be sold anyway, so has a price been agreed and if so, then ''full steam ahead''!
Especially if the relationship between you and your ex is not amicable then to jointly conduct the sale of a home would be very difficult.
I think with regards to facing it alon, as you have been to FH already, a house sale..... piece of pxxx.
Jamdee I am totally ready to move. But had surveyores valuation that I now have to stick too. If I don''t get surveyors valuation I will be less than 50% ON Asset Share. Blo**Dy hell why should I be taking the whole gamble on prices!! I need to rehouse the children, he sits in a £750k property, supporting fully the biff who owns her own property and earns 25k a year but apparently she does not contribute so he is now claiming he cannot afford CSA payments
If you think you can cope the additional stress of selling the FMH. I would argue to go it alone.
Recently I was involved in my partners purchase of a house. There was one house he was interested in. It was obviously a joint selling by a divorcing couple who just couldnt agree on a price, that was after the estate agent had to wait 6 weeks to get viewing. My partner just walked away even though the house was amazing. He just didnt want to get involved.
