My ex partner and i purchased a house a few years ago and both are on the mortgage. I however paid several thousands of my own money to enable the deposit to be paid, and have a legal document stating that upon sale of the house i will receive the first amount that i put into the house of any equity.
We split up a couple of years ago and the house is currently for sale, i have actually lowered the price to enable a sale so that my ex is off the mortgage.
It is currently priced at ten thousand below the original market price.
The more it is lowered then the more i lose from the original equity.
My ex now keeps making threats for me to lower the price even more so it will sell and if i dont she will force me to do this via a court order...
Can she do this?
We were not married.
Thanks for your reply, No there is at the minute no court order, can the court actually issue an order when i have put the house up for sale and already reduced the asking price?I dont have an issue with the house being up for sale nor for it to be sold but just not at a price that I don''t believe is reasonale considering the money I put into it.
